"It's okay to be afraid to fail but don't ever let it stop you from making art or doing anything. You want to tell a story? You don't think you are good enough? You don't know what to do? Try to do it, go out there. Put it out there. listen to the audience. There are things in Carrie I got right; there are things I got wrong. The audience taught me, and I fixed it." -Kimberly Peirce
