"There’s no wrong choice, and in the choosing, you’re gonna find something out. In just trying to follow what you want down one road, you’re not taking the other road. You can get there so many different ways. I didn’t have any 'in' into show business. I didn’t have any connection. Show business (or any business) shouldn’t feel like a bad relationship. Like, how long will you stay in a relationship with a guy who doesn’t call you? Show business can feel that way sometimes. You have to get through it, weather these times of difficulty and rejection, but who wants to be in a club that doesn’t want them? My friends have said, 'I’m gonna be a yoga teacher. I’m gonna do something else. I just want to be happy,' so there’s that, too. Sometimes the path you take teaches you that you’d rather do something else.
...

In terms of what that job was for me, I would never have known that we would be sitting here talking about it…People will tell you your entire life, 'Be in the moment.' And, that perhaps is a futile pursuit. You can’t possibly see the future. You can’t know [what] the moment you’re in will mean down the line, so you just have to be there as much as you can. Life is surprising." - Lauren Graham via Rookie Mag
