Joan Lunden

I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

Steve Jobs

I went on a book tour immediately after 9/11. I was due to leave the following Wednesday, so I just did. It was an amazing thing, because planes hadn't been flying very many days, and I got on this plane and went to San Francisco, and the minute that plane lifted above the clouds, I felt this incredible sense of lightness.
Joan Didion
