Tom Green speaking with Bryan Callen about Government as he quotes David Henry Thoreau

Bryan: I see men everywhere hacking at the branches of evil while none of them are hitting the root.  The getting to the root of, the cause of what is going on, takes some work.  It takes some investigation.  You've got to read.  But if you don't, if you don't - then you are at risk of being a play thing to forces greater than yourself - and you will be used.  You will be used in one context or the another.

Tom Green speaking with George Stroumboulopoulos about Interviewing Oprah

Tom: ...You've interviewed her more times than anybody else, Is that correct?

George: That's what she said to me, yup.  That's what she said.  I think because, I mean I don't know, but I do think, what she said to me is that I don't bring my ego to the table and I'm just very present in the interview, and I listen. 

Tom: Yea

George: I mean look, i'm at that age man, i'm forty years old, I don't have anything to prove to anybody, least of all myself.  And what i've realize is that i've never had anything to prove to anybody least of all myself.  Like, life is so ... i'm trying to be really Zen about this right ... life is so lucky and so fleeting and most of our friends and family don't get a shot at a full life.  So I thought; 'oh i'm just going to enjoy every second of this'.  And with Oprah, I genuinely listened to her and I forget i'm on stage and I don't placate the guest i'm interviewing, but i'm genuinely connected to them.  The end result is irrelevant.  It's just, this is a good conversation.
