Yeah! I’m a gangster, see? Look at my suit, it’s from the early 20th century where we are right now currently! I gots a gun and a dame and— oh no the coppers! The coppers are all around me but it don’t matter because I got this prop gun— I mean REAL gun that I will use because that’s what you do in gangster times! Yup! I’m definitely not an actor in a fake thing wearing Warner Brothers wardrobe department property, because I’m a real gangster with my very own old timey car. No I mean, it’s not old timey, it’s TIMEY because we are in these times right now. Bang bang! I have to check my iPhone!
— every actor’s inner monologue while filming Gangster Squad (via theidiotking)
Don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.
