Courage Quote of the Day

George Lucas

Creator of "Star Wars"

My first six years in the business was hopeless. There's lot of times when you sit and you say, "Why am I doing this? I'll never make it. It's just not going to happen. I should really go out and get a real job, and try to survive," because I'd borrowed money from my parents. I'd borrowed money from my friends. You know, it didn't look like I was ever going to actually be able to pay anybody back. This is part of living. You do have to eat, pay rent and pay back your friends who are supporting you.
