You have to have fear to take risks - and I want to at least try.
Seann William Scott

I trust work, directors - I don't live in fear. All good experiences have come from trusting the universe. There is no other way to live or love. Otherwise, you create your own prison.
Fear of carbs, of gluten, of everything - we've distanced ourselves from the beauty of food, the art of it. It makes me sad when people say, 'Oh, I don't eat gluten. I don't eat cheese. I don't eat this. So I eat cardboard.'
My greatest fear: repetition.
I greatly fear some of America's greatest and most dangerous enemies are such as think themselves her best friends.
I live my life through fear. If I'm afraid of it I'll do it just so I'm not afraid of it anymore.
I always have the fear that, if I don't commit 100 percent to my work, then it's gonna suffer.
We are now in the 21st century: all books, including the Koran, should be fair game for flushing down the toilet without fear of violent reprisal.
