If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative. ~ Woody Allen

How true RB.....wise words indeed!!
I especially like this one given his work ethic. Some of his movies click, some do not, but he still churns one out every year.
If it was Easy, Everyone can do it If you want it, you have to do it Failure is a pause a test of your sprit A True Artist must learn to suffer gracefully, so that he can create Art Beautifully. Life is a Battlefield The Art of War by Sun Tzu is applied to life 1.Opportunities multiply as they are seized. 2.Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat. 3.He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot will be victorious. 4.Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win. 5.When torrential water tosses boulders, it is because of its momentum. When the strike of a hawk breaks the body of its prey, it is because of timing 6. All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.
When it comes to Woody, I'm reminded of his line from Annie Hall - "How could I have misread those signals?!" - Got Wood?
@Henry... personally, I'm a big fan of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching and his sutra #68 - The best athlete wants his opponent at his best. The best general enters the mind of his enemy. The best businessman serves the communal good. The best leader follows the will of the people." Though I have another translation of #68 which says it this way: "A good soldier is not violent. A good fighter is not angry. A good winner is not vengeful. A good employer is humble."
Any Annie Hall quote gets a Like from me, Brian.
Thanks RB... then there's always my favorite Woody Allen line from his B&W movie Zelig where he says: "I have to go!" The reporter asks, "Why?" Zelig/Woody replies, "I'm teaching a class on advanced masturbation... if I don't get there on time, they'll start without me." ;-)
Another great one...Love that movie.
