Totally unrehearsed

Wise words from Mel Brooks:

“Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him.” 

While many only think of Mel Brooks as a comedian, the multi-talented 88-year-old also is a thoughtful writer who is one of only a handful of people to have won all four of the major entertainment awards – Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony - three of them for writing.

A poet, too, he wrote: 

Hope for the best.
Expect the worst. 
Life is a play. 
We’re unrehearsed.

Mel Brooks
