I believe in this principle, even though it isn’t always the popular opinion: In all that we say, in all that we do, and in all we hope to achieve, if we have not love, we say nothing, do nothing, and achieve nothing. So we must respect and care for others (especially our critics) as love expects of us, for through this practice is the only true path to perfection. In other words, we must write what we love, for those we love, to achieve an overarching goal that we love, otherwise, we ultimately gain nothing.

Favorite Story to Tell: During a summer break in college, I spent two weeks acting in London. One night, while walking beside the River Thames with some new friends of mine, we ran into a member of our group sleeping on a bench with his messenger bag resting comfortably beside him. We tried to wake him to take him back to the flats, but he very impolitely told us to "leave him be". So we did. The next morning, when he came strolling around, his bag had been stolen as well as his shoes. He blamed us, but we just thought it was funny. I'm not sure he ever learned his lesson...
