The Saturday Writing Post — on failure

Interviewer Stephanie Stephens: “Is there one thing in life you’d like to undo?”

Actor Jeffrey Tambor: “No, and I’ll tell you why. All merits and all mistakes produce all the colors on your palette, and the interesting thing about acting or any art is that the mistakes are as valuable as the merits. So I’ve gotten great lessons from errors in my life. You have to make mistakes.”
