quote of the day: Viola Davis

November 17th, 2018

From Viola Davis (NPR interview):

“My definition of success is legacy, is significance. And also, might I add, my authenticity is my rebellion. It’s my F.U., per se. It helps when I think of it like that. That’s why I give these speeches; that’s why I say what I say. And it’s also my narcissism, because I feel that that’s probably what sets me apart from most people. But all those things are in my idea of success. If I can go to my grave feeling like — you know, it’s like Lorraine Toussaint said. She said the reason why she adopted her child is because she didn’t want ‘series regular’ to be on her tombstone. And yeah, I want something quite beautiful, like Shirley Chisholm — you know, on her tombstone is ‘Unbought and Unbossed.’”
