How to Shake a Cocktail
My job is compassion.
Curiosity is a muscle.
If you find pieces of wonderful things, put them close to you, so they can give you ideas, so they can start feeding you in every moment in your workspace.
It's important to rest your body and be forgiving of yourself.
At the heart of those stories [I write] is a fundamental question, Do the people who I think of as the most deeply related to me, do I fundamentally understand them and to they understand me, you know. And that is at the heart of so many stories.
I don't think we often honor the journey that immigrants take to America with traits that are positive, right? We tend to honor the desperation and the difficulty, but we don't often ascribe the kind of positive agency that is authentic to their experience.
The fundamental experiences we have when we little are the same experiences that drive us when we are older.
If you have questions about who you are, you will find out the answers to those questions in the last minute of a fight...you can't lie to yourself about who you are in the last minute of a fight.

As a creative person you’re often doing creative things for other people and you need to remember to do that stuff for yourself.
Too often I’ll be too critical of my actions or I’ll beat myself up that I haven’t done. You wouldn’t like someone like that in your life as a friend, so why would you let that voice live inside your head?
As a creative person we have tools at our disposal that other people don’t have.
Because of the pace of modern life, it’s getting more and more important to seek out silence in our lives.
What I want to urge you to do is to take a little risk and to open up to your circle of friends and family, and to try and share some of the painful stuff that you’re going through.
