Laugh at yourself, but don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.

Alan Alda, Actor, born January 28th 1936

  1. I read his memoir a while back, and though the man is scatter-brained, he had some brilliant insights and lived a remarkable life. Very interesting. Thanks for reminding me of him.

    1. I’ve been meaning to read the memoir. Alda is an incredibly talented individual with a wide range of interests. As you say he can be a bit scatter brained, but that can be interesting as one minute he will be regaling the audience with an anecdote about M*A*S*H and the next talking about some new technology he learned about as part of a science show he did something for.
