AN EVENING WITH MIKE NICHOLS AND ELAINE MAY.
#120 in my RECORD COLLECTION series.
For Dangerous Minds.
“I’ve learned that many of the worst things lead to the best things, that no great thing is achieved without a couple of bad, bad things on the way to them, and that the bad things that happen to you bring, in some cases, the good things. For instance, if you grow up odd and peculiar. Different.
The degree to which you’re peculiar and different is the degree to which you must learn to hear people thinking. Just in self-defense you have to learn, where is their kindness? Where is their danger? Where is their generosity? If you survive, because you’ve gotten lucky—and there’s no other reason ever to survive except luck—you will find that the ability to hear people thinking is incredibly usefull.”
- Mike Nichols
I dedicated this to Dangerous Minds, because I remembered Richard Metzger mentioning it on the blog…
In fact, it might have been the post about the MONITOR sessions that first turned me on to Dangerous Minds… & that gave me such a sense of validation.
Listening to Nichols & May play off each other ★IS★ music to me!
p.s. I cheated a little bit; this is the back cover.
