Woody Allen

Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

I’ve loved this quote since I heard a biography of Woody Allen on NPR. He’s really an interesting guy. People think of him as a wimp because he writes himself as such in his movies. Actually, he was a middle-weight boxer at his university. I like this quote because it reminds me of my own success. People will always try and drag you down in life, judging your dreams, telling you if you have the “special sauce” or not. But if you make a plan and show up for it, you’re destined for success.

I'm a blogger, film critic, & podcaster with an MA in English from California State University, Fullerton. I teach public school, 4th grade as my primary occupation. My views on films and life are usually headstrong and often 'left of center' on movies and life, but I have respect for the other side. I married my high-desert princess (now my queen). We have 3 children.
