Woody Allen On Life

Wednesday, 21 August 2013

I was reading an interview with Woody Allen on the weekend, via Cup of Jo, and given my frame of mind last week, this quote caught my attention...

"It's just an accident that we happen to be on earth, enjoying our silly little moments, distracting ourselves as often as possible so we don't have to really face up to the fact that, you know, we're just temporary people with a very short time in a universe that will eventually be completely gone. And everything that you value, whether it's Shakespeare, Beethoven, da Vinci, or whatever, will be gone. The earth will be gone. The sun will be gone. There'll be nothing. The best you can do to get through life is distraction. Love works as a distraction. And work works as a distraction. You can distract yourself a billion different ways. But the key is to distract yourself."

Depressing or inspiring? I kind of like it, reminds me to keep things in perspective.
