“When you aren’t drinking or using drugs or spending lots of money on fancy toys or basking in the glow of fame or working all the time or eating your way through the refrigerator, being hateful and angry is a very handy shield from the truth.  It lets you focus on everyone else’s shortcomings, and all the ways they have let you down.  You can bemoan how all these broken people keep finding you somehow.  That way you don’t have to focus on what really matters—the tough work of finding what is broken inside you.”

“By the time I was 30, nobody would work with me.  I knew my life was at a crossroads.  It was either over, or I was going to restart.  I was friendless, I was hopeless, I was suicidal, lost my family.  I mean, it was bad.  Bottomed out, didn’t know what I was going to do.  I actually thought I was going to be a chef—go to work in a kitchen someplace.”

“It does not have to be that the greatest generation is behind us.  It does not have to be that our children will have a lower standard of living.  It will be that way if we choose to believe that.  I choose not to believe that.”
