You know how I got addicted to cocaine? I tried it. The problem with drugs is that they work. Right up until the moment they decimate your life. Try cocaine and you’ll become addicted to it. Become addicted to cocaine and you will either be dead or you will wish you were dead, but it will only be one or the other. – Aaron Sorkin (screenwriter, actor, producer)
Don’t ever forget that you’re a citizen of this world. And there are things you can do to lift the human spirit—things that are easy; things that are free; things that you can do everyday. Civility. Respect. Kindness. Character. You’re too good for Schadenfreude. You’re too good for gossip & snark. Youre too good for intolerance. And since you’re walking into the middle of a presidential election that’s worth mentioning, that you’re too good to think people who disagree with you are your enemy. – Aaron Sorkin (screenwriter, actor, producer)
You’re going to fall down but the world doesn’t care how many times you fall down as long as it’s one fewer than the number of times you get back up. – Aaron Sorkin (screenwriter, actor, producer)
