Steal Borrow Other

Good writers borrow from other writers. Great writers steal from them outright.

- Aaron Sorkin

Couch Balloons Some

I had a lot of survival jobs. One was for the Witty Ditty singing-telegram company. I was in the red-and-white stripes with the straw boater hat and kazoo. Balloons. Even when you're sleeping on a friend's couch, you have to pay some kind of rent.

- Aaron Sorkin

Two People About Any

Any time you get two people in a room who disagree about anything, the time of day, there is a scene to be written. That's what I look for.

- Aaron Sorkin

Kind Going Other

As long as you keep one foot in the real world while the other foot's in a fairy tale, that fairy tale is going to seem kind of attainable.

- Aaron Sorkin

Work Maybe Wearing

All my heroes wore coats and ties to work. What happened to men wearing hats? Maybe I should bring back hats.

- Aaron Sorkin

Anybody About I Write

I am uncomfortable talking about the things that I write. It seems unseemly to me. I have no problem at all when I see anybody else talking about the same project, but I feel my work should speak for itself.

- Aaron Sorkin

Myself Like Rather

I feel like the better version of myself is on paper... I'd rather have people know me on paper.

- Aaron Sorkin

Good Writing Office About

I've got plenty of quirks. I go to an office early in the morning. Early in the morning is really good writing time. I take anywhere between six to eight showers a day. I'm not exaggerating. I'm not a germaphobe: it's all about a fresh start.

- Aaron Sorkin

Think I Think TV

I think socializing on the Internet is to socializing what reality TV is to reality.

- Aaron Sorkin

Change Small Thoughtful

Don't ever forget that a small group of thoughtful people can change the world, it's the only thing that ever has.

- Aaron Sorkin

Very Movie Jobs

If you lined up 10 writers and asked them to write a movie about Steve Jobs, you'd get 10 very different movies.

- Aaron Sorkin

Very About Around

I'm very physical. When I'm writing, I'm playing all the parts; I'm saying the lines out loud, and if I get excited about something - which doesn't happen very often when I'm writing, but it's the greatest feeling when it does - I'll be out of the chair and walking around, and if I'm at home, I'll find myself two blocks from my house.

- Aaron Sorkin

Necessary Which Intrusion

I consider plot a necessary intrusion on what I really want to do, which is write snappy dialogue.

- Aaron Sorkin

Decisions Show Made

Decisions are made by those who show up.

- Aaron Sorkin

Death Life And Death Never

Writing never comes easy. The difference between Page 2 and Page Nothing is the difference between life and death.

- Aaron Sorkin

Love Some Agent

I love writing but hate starting. The page is awfully white, and it says, 'You may have fooled some of the people some of the time, but those days are over, giftless. I'm not your agent, and I'm not your mommy; I'm a white piece of paper. You wanna dance with me?' and I really, really don't. I'll go peaceable-like.

- Aaron Sorkin

Think Other I Think

It seems to me that more and more we've come to expect less and less from each other, and I think that should change.

- Aaron Sorkin

Banana Making Aria

I am truly at my happiest not when I am writing an aria for an actor or making a grand political or social point. I am at my happiest when I've figured out a fun way for somebody to slip on a banana peel.

- Aaron Sorkin

Love Reason Need

I desperately need the love of complete strangers. That's one reason I overtip. I love when skycaps, waiters, and valets are happy to see me.

- Aaron Sorkin

Memory Greeting Plays

I have all of the Apple products. Everything I've ever written, I've written on a Mac. My first computer, my roommates and I chipped in, and we got that first Macintosh - 128K. It had as much memory as a greeting card that plays music.
