Annie Leibovitz

"It was more than shooting another guy when you’re shooting John Lennon. Even I knew that much, and I was just a dumb kid, twenty years old. It was like photographing a god. I’m grateful for the people who had faith I could handle the job."

Jeff Bridges

"My wife is the big blessing in my life. We’ve been married more than thirty years. Marriage is a funny judo-deal-the so-called obstacles and pitfalls, the tough stuff, those are the real blessings."

Marcia Gay Harden

"It’s an incredible honor to win an Oscar [for 2001’s Pollack), so much joy, and a moment I’ll never forget. But the next morning? Scripts were not piled up outside my door . . . If you talked to people in the couple of years right after I won the Oscar, they probably would have said I was the clichéd Oscar disaster. But I’m grateful for the trophy."

Morgan Freeman

"You need only look at today’s news to see how wild, unbridled success coming when you’re young and foolish-two things that often come together-can be a great detriment to a talented person. In my case, I appreciate being older when I became successful."

Maya Rudolph

"As fat as they make you, I am really grateful for avocados. I grew up in California where you could always get a great avocado. When I first went to New York, I was so surprised; avocados are not so easy to get there, and I thought, ‘What kind of place is this anyway?’"

Nikki Giovanni (poet)

"I’m totally in love with my sixties. I don’t know what people are bitching and moaning about. I know I’ll wake up one day and have Alzheimer’s or something, but right now I’m writing with a deeper intensity than ever."
