QUOTES:
“...I had a really strong foundation and I decided there were two paths in life. There was one path which was to just sort of float with it, and there was another path to be aggressive and try to make something of yourself and do something that would put you in a position to be able to do something else, to be able to do something else, to do something else...” [5:24]

“Steven Spielberg didn't read a book how to direct. He went out and did it, made some mistakes, made some brilliant things, figured it out, and then just growing and growing and growing.
