     "I craved to be a journalist... My parents did have some influence on my choice of a career because being a journalist isn't actually choosing to be a carpenter. My parents were writers. I wanted to be a writer."
Nora Ephron



     "I know that people are afraid of me... Sometimes it's helpful. The opposite of it is something I'm not interested in, which is that people think they can walk all over you; and when you're a screenwriter, people think that anyway."
Nora Ephron
