Aaron Sorkin's quotes

  • [speaking about freebased cocaine] I had found a drug I absolutely love and that gave me a real break from a certain nervous tension that I kind of carry with me moment to moment.
  • When things that are very mean-spirited and voyeuristic go on TV, I think it's [like] bad crack in the schoolyard.
  • I am all for everyone having a voice, I just don't think everyone has earned the microphone. And that's what the Internet has done.
  • I think socializing on the Internet is to socializing what reality TV is to reality.
  • I became a writer, because I wanted to be Donald Hollinger, because he got a girl like Ann Marie.
  • My big fear when I quit drugs was that I wouldn't be able to write anymore. Because if you're a writer, and you're on a roll - and I was on a roll when I was high - you don't want to change anything about the way you work.
  • 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. That's really what I want to do.
  • [to his daughter in a Father's Day letter] The nurse taught me how to swaddle you. My first try didn't go so well.You had a look on your face that said, 'Oh my God, my father's a moron'.
  • [About accidentally breaking his nose while writing a scene] If it were a Martin Scorsese film, they would've said, "Let's do it again but this time less blood."
