I met a number of great people and learned that none of them were born great - they all made lots of mistakes and had lots of weaknesses - and that great people become great by looking at their mistakes and weaknesses and figuring out how to get around them . . . So I learned that the people who make the most of the process of encountering reality, especially the painful obstacles, learn the most and get what they want faster than people who do not. ... In short, I learned that being totally truthful, especially about mistakes and weaknesses, led to a rapid rate of improvement and movement toward what I wanted.

I can spell it out really clearly. I don't care what conservative white men think about me, but I do care if anything I write is painful for survivors of sexual abuse, or if anything I write is painful for other feminists.

It's amazing how similar our experiences are. [Nimoy] went through a painful divorce, and so did I. He had the birth of children, and so did I.

And trying too hard is probably the right explanation for my mistake.
Humor can keep things vital if it doesn't get dated . . . If someone else wrote this book, it'd just be a historical novel, but Vonnegut has all these different ironical layers that turn it into something else.

It's more painful humor, I guess, sort of fish-out-of-water kind of humor, and the fish is in the worst situation possible.
I am a 53-year-old gay man who had to come out in the '80s, when it wasn't fashionable. I was a Catholic, so I had a very, very painful experience with being gay . . . This role was sort of putting the finger directly in that wound and forcing me to confront that.
