‘I’ve met so many fans of daytime television who’ve watched the shows with their moms and grandmas and feel like they’ve known the characters their whole lives.

‘I’ve had tons of bullies who would call me retarded, even on my Facebook page. It’s sad and it really hurts. I want to tell people not to use the word.

‘When people ask me, ‘Are you happy?’ I respond with, ‘You’ve asked the wrong question.’ There is a deep kind of satisfaction you get from building a company. This kind of satisfaction transcends happy, sad, hard, or easy. I seek satisfaction. I want to be positively disruptive.’ – David Ulevitch

‘With Facebook, you’re not really allowed to be unhappy. Think about it: There’s only a like button. Yes, you can be angry, but it’s only lighthearted rage. On Reddit, perhaps because you can be anonymous, people are willing to be openly sad or angry. They are more honest.’ – Yishan Wong

‘One of the things psychologists used to say was that if you are depressed, anxious or angry, you couldn’t be happy. Those were at opposite ends of a continuum.

‘Scientists habitually moan that the public doesn’t understand them. But they complain too much: public ignorance isn’t peculiar to science.

‘I don’t think I could compare myself to Macaulay Culkin, because we’re pretty much two different kinds of actors. He’s done a lot of comedy. He does mostly just comedy like ‘Uncle Buck’ and ‘Home Alone’ and ‘Home Alone 2.’ And I’ve done a lot of different stuff, like sad movies, like the movie about the kid with AIDS.’ – Brian Bonsall

‘I think everything is going to be devastatingly sad – when the phone rings, I know somebody in my family’s been hurt, somebody’s going to die.
