My glorious friend Shoshana Bean asked me to provide an inspirational quote for young people starting out in show business. I don’t know what she’s doing with all these quotes she’s collecting, but here’s what I said:

The hardest thing in the world is convincing other people to love the same thing you do. But the fact that it’s hard does not diminish your love – it must not. You go on loving that thing because, even if it’s naïve, even if it’s foolish, even if it’s wrong, you believe in the very marrow of your bones that you will be able to convince them, eventually, some time. That certainty, that passion is too valuable to surrender in the face of resistance. You may not have convinced them yet; you will.

Now come see us at Barre Vt. in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 30!
