tavi brilliance

I’ve been majorly fangirling over Tavi lately (moreso than usual! whattt) and stumbled on this quote:

Last night I was listening to Charlie Kaufman’s BAFTA speech, and he cited an e.e. cummings quote that I then looked up today…“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best night and day to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being could fight.” And I liked what Kaufman said afterward. He said, “The world needs you. It doesn’t need you at a party having read a book about how to appear smart at parties. These books exist and they’re tempting, but resist falling into that trap. The world needs you at the party starting real conversations, saying ‘I don’t know’ and being kind.”

Saying “I don’t know” and being kind. Yes.
