Quote of the Day

“We're all heading to the same station [death]. There's a great line by T.S. Eliot: 'There's only the trying. The rest is not our business.' Just keep trying. Do what you can, but don't stop, and particularly don't stop at that sign that says success. Run that light. Run that light.”

-- Robert Redford, in Scott Raab's great profile, “Free at Last: The Robert Redford Story,” in the April issue of Esquire. I'm like Raab, coming of age when Redford was ascendant, and have my own Redford stories. (I wrote a small piece on Redford's political movies in 2007.) I might get to the others one day.

Robert Redford as Bob Woodward in "All the President's Men" (1976)

“Mr. Dahlberg? Mr. Ken Dahlberg?” Bob Woodward, trying.
