When it feels like you’re losing that inspiration – or you’re in a rut, not making stuff, and your head gets all weird – be gentle on yourself. Just ease into things naturally. But you still have to ease into it: you still have to sit in the chair.”

― Fred Funk

“There seems to be a vulnerability at the networks in late night. They are losing more and more audience, particularly young viewers who are now looking at cable television. ‘Tonight’ is an old show. CBS has reruns, and having a public affairs series like ‘Nightline’ on ABC is a big mistake.”

It really bothers me.”

“Losing so many patients certainly was difficult, but it didn’t make me feel like a failure as a physician, because I had learned that there was so much more to being a physician than curing illness.
