"Well, you don’t need an education to jump into show business! Got news for you! You could have a perfectly wonderful, very highly compensated career without knowing much about anything… But it’s the kind of citizen, the kind of artist, the kind of person you wanna be that compels you to learn about things and you know, it’s your only life. So fill it up! You know? Fill up that mind because the only thing up there is the only thing they can’t take away from you."

 Meryl Streep [when being asked if you need an education to get into show business]
