It’s All in the Going

Writer & comedian Patton Oswalt“It took me until my 40s to realize it: There’s no destination. There’s no getting anywhere. There’s just the going. The key to life is to make the going really fun. Because people that are like, ‘If I just get to this, then boom!’ And then they get there and there’s this dawning of an afterwards. Whereas I’m just always in the going. And it’s not a frantic going like, ‘I gotta keep going or I’m gonna go nuts!’ I can not do anything for weeks or months if I need to and just sit and read books or watch movies. I’m just as fine consuming and absorbing new art as I am trying to make it. But it’s all in the going.” – Patton Oswalt in this great A.V. Club interview
