Brad Pitt on being perfect.

Stop being perfect, because obsessing over being perfect stops you from growing.

On losing.

You must lose everything in order to gain anything.

On happiness.

I think happiness is overrated. Satisfied, at those would be more realistic goals.

On missteps.

Each misstep leads to the next correct step.

On fame.

Fame makes you feel permanently like a girl walking past construction workers.

On love.

You don't really get to choose who you fall in love with. Love chooses you.

On right and wrong.

There's no right. There's no wrong. There's only popular opinion.

On aging.

Personally, I like aging. With age comes wisdom and I have said it before and I say it again, I will take wisdom over youth any day.

What would you do?

In Missouri, where I come from, we don't talk about what we do - we just do it. If we talk about it, it's seen as bragging.
