When emerging from humble beginnings, those around you tend to underestimate your authenticity because they knew you before you were 'somebody'.
You need that pride in yourself, as well as a sense, when you are sitting on Page 297 of a book, that the book is going to be read, that somebody is going to care. You can't ever be sure about that, but you need the sense that it's important, that it's not typing; it's writing.
If you want to hurt somebody and you want to know where his vulnerable spot is you have to know him, before you can put in the right dig, that's very important.
Knowing that I make somebody's day better is all that matters at the end of the day.
I had to stop traveling alone because I missed so many planes. When somebody runs up to you in the airport and begins to tell you their life story, you can't say, 'Excuse me, boo,' as they're weeping on your bosom.
I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.
