Woody Allens’ Famous Quote

“Showing up is 80 percent of life. Sometimes it’s easier to hide home in bed. I’ve done both.” – 1977 August 21, New York Times

He went onto expand this further in 1989 when he said:

“My observation was that once a person actually completed a play or a novel, he was well on his way to getting it produced or published, as opposed to a vast majority of people who tell me their ambition is to write, but who strike out on the very first level and indeed never write the play or book. In the midst of the conversation, as I’m now trying to recall, I did say that 80 percent of success is showing up.” – 1989 August 13, New York Times>>> Get the Rest of the Article >>>   read more
