„I think many of us go through our life not fully having permission to be who we are and what we're going to become.“
— Martin de Maat American theatre director 1949 - 2001
Context: I think many of us go through our life not fully having permission to be who we are and what we're going to become. Most of us are often looking for approval. We hate it when we're not approved of. It's that approval that has us in our minds worrying about what we're doing as we're doing it, trying to figure out whether or not it's appropriate or will be accepted. We walk through our lives like we're on our first date. Trying to see if we're appropriate and trying not to step on other peoples' toes... you know, cautiously, prophylactically, for fear of not being approved of. In this work, there's only approval.
„It has become this really beautiful network of people, both professional and amateur, that just come together to have a good time depending on what city we're in.“

„But I also see a problem where a lot of people don't believe in the American idea anymore. The condition of your birth doesn't determine the outcome of your life. This is America, you can make it. You work hard, play by the rules, you can rise, you can do well. That's what we're taught, that's what we believe, that's what we think of as America. Problem is, there are just generations of people in this country who do not think that.“
— Paul Ryan American politician 1970
„I want to see a woman president soon, but not [Hillary Clinton]. She's a disaster. She's a disaster. She's a disaster. I mean, just think of the corruption and the scandal… We don't want to go through it. We want to see winning. We want to see win, win, win – constant winning. And you'll say – if I'm president… 'Please, Mr. President, we're winning too much. We can't stand it anymore. Can't we have a loss?' And I'll say no, we're going to keep winning, winning, winning… because we're going to make America great again. And you'll say, 'Okay, Mr. President. Okay.“
