"Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process."

"What interests me about novelists as a species is the obsessiveness of the activity, the fact that novelists have to go on writing. I think that probably must come from a sense of the irrecoverable. In every novelist’s life there is some more acute sense of loss than with other people, and I suppose I must have felt that. I didn’t realize it, I suppose, till the last ten or fifteen years. In fact you have to write novels to begin to understand this. There’s a kind of backwardness in the novel…an attempt to get back to a lost world."

Glazer: People have said it's a cult-like thing, the whole physical-is-spiritual gym concept. You're either for the idea or think it's totally ridiculous.
Jacobson: That's how cults usually work. You don't see a lot of half-ass cult members.
Glazer: "Yeah, I mean, I guess this cult is okay…"
Jacobson: "I'm sort of on the fence about this whole be-in-a-cult thing. Tell you what, I'll flip a coin, and…."
Glazer: "Is there a cult that's a little more commitmentaphobe-friendly? Because I'd be way down with that. Maybe."
