All those Ivy Leaguers going into finance, so they can get rich. Money won’t keep you warm at night. But if you’re really changing the world, doing good, you’ve got a reason to get up in the morning, your life makes sense.
These people are dedicated.
Got a boyfriend? Got a girlfriend?
Got any friends?
That’s what drives me wild, the people who want to have it all. They want to be rock stars and have a family and live a normal life… That’s not how you make it. You make it by being single-minded, giving up everything but the cause. And still, you might not succeed. You might get blown up by a bomb just when you’re getting close. Even worse, you might get blown away when you’re far from the target. Are you willing to take that risk?
OF COURSE NOT!
You don’t want any risk. All you want is GUARANTEES!
No, you’re too old to know. You’re ready for the scrapheap.
But you gain through experience. “Hurt Locker” was just a stepping stone to “Zero Dark Thirty.”
Yup, stay home. Be a pussy. Pontificate.
Or, you can go to the theatre and be positively blown away.
