“Well the best advice I’ve ever received was from my dad. It was such a grandiose kind of statement. I think it was even the day that I graduated high-school; it was one of those really cheesy moments. But he said that, ‘You are going to encounter a lot of problems in your life. And sometimes they might even be problems that neither your mother nor I nor anybody else has ever experienced before you, but the fact is that you’re going to have to confront them. And you’re going to have to do the best that you can. You can’t just give up and you can’t just always depend on other people. You’re going to have to be brave and go forth and  live your life despite the fact that shit is hard,’ basically.”
