Jason Segel Quotes
“If it’s achievement that you place your value in, you’re never going to achieve enough. If it’s power, you always need to wield power over others. If it’s money, you’ll never be rich enough. But if you do something and are a part of what is happening, then you’re always in it and it’s always enough.”
“I have always felt like romantic comedies are incredibly predictable. You look at the poster and you know those two are ending up together at the end of the movie.”
“That’s the best advice I can give – when you’re trying to write a comedy, first write a drama, and then make it funny.”
