More From David Sedaris
- "I’ve been keeping a diary for thirty-three years and write in it every morning. Most of it’s just whining, but every so often there’ll be something I can use later: a joke, a description, a quote. It’s an invaluable aid when it comes to winning arguments. ‘That’s not what you said on February 3, 1996,’ I’ll say to someone."
- "The humor section is the last place an author wants to be. They put your stuff next to collections of Cathy cartoons."
- "After a few months in my parents’ basement, I took an apartment near the state university, where I discovered both crystal methamphetamine and conceptual art. Either one of these things are dangerous, but in combination they have the potential to destroy entire civilizations."
More In Change
- "I just find the evangelical church too, well, restrictive. But the School of Practical Philosophy is nonconfrontational. We believe there are many forms of Scripture. What is true is true and will never change, whether it’s in the Bible or in Shakespeare. It’s about oneness."― Hugh Jackman
- "Our fathers valued change for the sake of its results; we value it in the act."― Alice Meynell
- "I don’t read reviews because by then it’s too late – whatever anyone says, the book won’t change. It is written."― Jeanette Winterson
