Quote of the pattern-that-is-not-consistent

"I should point out that something that's occurred to me several times in my carreer, I'm always amazed later on when I realize how little I had to lose. Which I think is a really good thing to tell younger people. that I had so many people, there's a lot of shout and fraught when you take on something big." When I was taking the Letterman post, you could just feel it, "Oh, that's pretty big shoes to fill." That's all I heard: "Pretty big shoes to fill. Pretty big shoes to fill." I remember, I did an interview with Katie Couric, she said, "Well, what if after this is over, what if it fails and you're just a Trivial Pursuit question?" and I thought, "Great! I'll be a Trivial Pursuit question!" Like, that's better than nothing. If you're willing to risk some humiliation and some pain, you can do amazing things in this world." -Conan O'Brien
