What I’ve Learned by Woody Allen

There’s a great interview with Woody Allen by Cal Sussman over on Esquire, where he shares some of the things he’s learned in his long and fruitful career. Lots of pearls of wisdom in it, but the quote below was my personal favorite.

My mother taught me a value — rigid discipline. My father didn’t earn enough, and my mother took care of the money and the family, and she had no time for lightness. She always saw the glass a third full. She taught me to work and not to waste time.
