Speechwriter quotes Stephen Sondheim, on the art of living

One of the better speechwriting blogs out there is Beginner’s Mind: Diary of a Speechwriter, by Chapel Hill, N.C.-based freelancer Allison Wood.

In her latest introspective effort, Wood quotes Stephen Sondheim, who turned 80 this month, about how to work and live:


I chose and my world was shaken. So what?

The choice may have been mistaken; the choosing was not.

You have to move on …


Stop worrying if your vision is new.

Let others make that decision …

they usually do!

You keep moving on …


Anything you do, let it come from you—

then it will be new.
