'The Talent of a Writer'

“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.” – Mel Brooks


While many only think of Brooks as a comedian, the multi-talented 94-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.



 “You’re always a little disappointing in person,” Brooks said.  “Because you can’t be the edited essence of yourself.”
