conversational highlights from Steven Soderbergh and Mike Ayers of Esquire
"We need to evolve to another level, very soon, or we’re going to be fucked."
"Because ideology is the gasoline for assholes."
"Your take on things is what is either going to make you somebody we talk about or no. You have to have a take on shit."
"We’re all standing on the shoulders of what other people have done."
"You need enough ego to keep going but not so much ego that you’re deaf or blind, that you’re making a mistake and can’t fix the course."
"The process of discovery or coming up with an idea is so resistant to formula."
"Are you good at telling a story?"
