Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

We're built to deal with death, disease, failure, struggle, heartbreak, problems. It's what separates us from the animals and why we envy and love animals so much.

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

The last day i was home i took the rental car up old 14 behind the Sandia Mountains. as i drove north toward Santa Fe past Madrid I rolled the window down halfway and let the cold, brisk, February air come into the car. I smelled the pinon trees and the damp earth. The Gray came over me. My life flashed through my heart in one deep rush of feeling. When I made the turn around the mountain to the west, the mesas and valleys spread out before me under the orange and gold horizon. The sun hit me like a wave that flooded out the past and dissolved any idea of the future, and I felt okay and whole for about twenty minutes. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I'm not for everyone. I'm barely for me. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I've gotta stop thinking I know what other people think, cause most of 'what other people think' is something I'm making up. So I should just let them have their experience, I'll have my experience and not pretend to know, and just get past that. [I think that] is a major obstacle: manifesting that insecurity, that fear. Believing the audience in your head as opposed to what's really going on in the world - not responding to the one I'm making up, which is always going to judge me harder than the real one. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I think sharing experience makes everything better. When people get talking about how they've overcome something or how they haven't, it's nourishing. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

My cats, the ones that I have, were feral when I found them so the relationship that I have with them 10 years in is very mutual, earned, and evolved over time. It was never an easy thing. I like that they have a certain distance and have their own sense of selves. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

That's an animal fable about humility. If you survive your mistake, you must learn from it. Accept that you're fragile, vulnerable, and sometimes stupid. Realize that you're not immortal and you've got to take care of yourself. And then laugh it off and fly away. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I'm happy, certainly, given the times we're living in, to be doing OK, and to not be worrying about money, and to be producing something I enjoy. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By John Hodgman

That catharsis is really the core of the incredibly personal comedy of Louis C.K. or Marc Maron or whatever. And look - I find it fascinating that I'm sitting here talking about some of these things, and not to low tones, and my kids are in the other room. I have to trust that if they hear what I'm saying and they have questions about it, I'll be able to answer it, and that's fine. But that's part of the scariness of it - the reality of opening up my own life and my own feelings. — John Hodgman

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

My dad is actually a manic depressive, which is very exciting half the time. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

What you don't know about your parents is what becomes fascinating as you get older. They — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

It always astounds me that over the course of my career, and having lived in four comedy cities - New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles - there's very few people I haven't run into. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Most of the books I have are indicators of my insecurity. I really wanted to be an intellectual. I really wanted to understand Sartre. I thought that was what made people smart. I have tried to read Being and Nothingness no fewer than twenty times in my life. I really thought that every answer had to be in that book. Maybe it is. The truth is, I can't read anything with any distance. Every book is a self-help book to me. Just having them makes me feel better. I underline profusely but I don't retain much. Reading is like a drug. When I am reading from these books it feels like I am thinking what is being read, and that gives me a rush. That is enough. I glean what I can. I finish some of the unfinished thoughts lingering around in my head by adding the thoughts of geniuses and I build from there. There are bookmarks in most of the denser tomes at around page 20 to 40 because that was where I said, "I get it." Then I put them back on the shelf. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I always thought I was funny, but I was very sensitive, and very provocative just to get a rise out of people. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

What appealed to me was the intimacy of the medium, the fact that I was doing it from my home, and the fact that I wanted to talk. I was not there to plug things. I don't do a hell of a lot of research. I go on a sort of kindred-spirit bonding that preexists the interview, and just see what unfolds. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I think things evolve into jokes. I don't generally write them down as jokes. I talk them out. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I need to complicate everything to protect myself from success and to remain complicated and overwhelmed. I — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

There's this whole post-modern, nuevo beatnik, retro-bohemian thing going on, you know what I mean? You walk into some coffee shops, and it feels like you're an ex-patriot in Paris in the 20s. You're like, 'Hey, isn't that a young Ernest Hemingway over there? Yeah, I think it is! Hey, let's go have a look and see what he's writing ... It's a Gap application.' — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Dogs are too much to handle. I don't need anything in my house that's needier than me. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

When you commit your life to something and it doesn't work out, it is a tough place to be. Suicide can be the spiritual reprieve of a faithless person. I knew I could always just end it, and there was solace in that. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Moshe Kasher

When I first started comedy, before I kind of gained any national prominence, I - in a weird way - went back to that. Marc Maron had me on WTF making fun of me about that when I first opened for him. I had this very kind of hip-hop bravado to me, and I realized that now I've let some of that go in my stage presence, that maybe that was because I had dropped that completely from my life, and when I got onstage I sort of rekindled it. And I think now that it was perhaps a defense mechanism that was left over from those days, which I think is kind of interesting. — Moshe Kasher

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I'm not a racist. It's really case by case; it's not ethnicity specific. It's just the way I react to things that are different. I think that's normal. Everyone's nervous when they're confronted with things that they don't understand or are different. That's a normal human reaction. It doesn't become racist 'til you say things like, 'Oh, there's a lot of them.' — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

It's amazing how much you can rationalize when you're on drugs. I could actually say to myself, Look, I'm only doing blow Wednesday through Saturday. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I don't really compartmentalize well. I'm in a state of anxiety and panic a lot, but it's for different reasons. It used to be because I had nothing going on, but I work very hard and there doesn't seem to be an end to it. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I seem to offend everybody. I just never got into the universe. I don't seem to have a tremendous amount of discipline or patience with having to follow a story that is really multi-leveled and science-fiction. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

He doesn't have anything like wisdom of age or hindsight. He's a biased historian of self, an emotional revisionist. We all are, for the most part. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Before hoarding became a phenomenon, people just called it "collecting" or "being nostalgic." I don't hoard, exactly, but I get it. It's a response to our need and desire for purpose, order, definition, and a fortress. It's a calling that requires constant management, control, and obsessive attention. I am amassing artifacts from the history of me. My garage is the storeroom and temporary exhibition hall of the yet-to-be-built museum documenting the rise and fall of the Marc Age. I am the curator. I decide the meaning and worth of the collection based on my feelings in a moment. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

The way I figure it, if you can't tell I'm high by looking at me, I win. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

There's a fine line between cultural criticism and bitterness. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Surveillance induced morality: relics of cultural retardation. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I don't make a list of questions. Ever. I think a lot of my interviews are driven by my need to feel connection. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

You hope to see an arc of growth in your ability to become a character on television. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Show business is one of the few businesses that the devil will actually agree to own just a portion of your soul because he knows if you have a performer's ego you were probably working for him all along. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

God doesn't seem to talk to people like he used to. Who's he talking to now? I don't know. Then I'm walking down the street in Manhattan one day, and I realize maybe it's those guys you see walking down the street talking to themselves. You know, those guys that are like, 'I can't! No, I can't!' Maybe the other side of that conversation is God going, 'You're the new leader.' 'No I can't!' They're not crazy - they're reluctant prophets. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

The demand for standup in the eighties was created by how easy it was to exploit 'comedians' and create very cheap television programming. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Why am I holding on to this stuff? Some of this junk is losing its punch. Pictures. Pieces of paper with writing on them - I can no longer connect with the thoughts or feelings that birthed them, that drove me in that panicky desperate moment to scribble in a barely legible scrawl as if on a cave wall. All say the same thing in some form or another: "I am here. This is me in this moment." Do I have some fantasy that this stuff will be important after I die? Do I think that scholars will be thrilled that I left such a disorganized treasure trove of creative evidence of me? Will the archives be fought over by college libraries? What will probably happen is my brother will come out with my mother and look in the boxes. My mother will hold up a VHS or a cassette and say to my brother, "Do I have a machine that plays these?" My brother will shake his head no and they will throw it all away. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I'm just looking for authentic engagement of some kind, and usually, after an hour or more, you get that. Some people talk at you. Some people just want to answer questions, but a lot of times, all of a sudden you drift away, and you don't remember you're on the mic, and you're in something real. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Margaret Maron

I came to writing mysteries through poetry and still think that a well-constructed mystery is very much like a well-constructed sonnet. Both are artificial forms. Both start off in one direction and then, with a twist of the concluding couplet/surprising ending, both reveal that they were headed somewhere different all the time. — Margaret Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Your insecurity and neediness is what makes you a big neurotic ball of comedy genius. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

When I was a young kid I loved Don Rickles, Buddy Hackett and Jackie Vernon. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I sort of get tired of myself sometimes. When you're busy, your life becomes relatively small. But I never get tired of talking to other people. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

A lot of people think that Jesus is coming back. That's fine, it's your right. But you know, I live in New York, and I think he's running a little late. I'm asking myself, 'Alright, what happens if Jesus comes back tomorrow? What - does he make rounds to churches?' 'OK, everyone who's been good, buses leave in 10 minutes. I'll meet you in front of the post office. I gotta go. Oh, don't tell the Jews I'm back.' — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

We need the children of Indonesia and the Philippines to manufacture our freedom of choice. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

When I was a young comic in New York and I wasn't getting any work, I was wandering around the Lower East Side with my notebook. I would stop at the guitar place on St. Mark's and talk to that dude for a while, then I'd go to the bookstore and talk to that dude for a little while. I had a guy over at the record store, and I'd talk to him for a while. It kept me connected to life. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

How complicated can ice cream flavors be? How much can you put in there? I mean, when the flavor's something like banana ice cream with caramel, fudge chunks, cheddar goldfish and pennies - you've got to draw a line there. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

It amazes me that we are all on Twitter and Facebook. By "we" I mean adults. We're adults, right? But emotionally we're a culture of seven-year-olds. Have you ever had that moment when are you updating your status and you realize that every status update is just a variation on a single request: "Would someone please acknowledge me? — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Some of you may be perfectly happy with mediocrity. Some of you will get nothing but heartbreak. Some of you will be heralded as geniuses and become huge. Of course, all of you think that one describes you ... hence the delusion necessary to push on. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I found a great deal of relief and excitement watching comics when I was very young. My grandmother was very into them and so was my grandfather. They had a profound effect on me, so I just found myself watching comedians on the after-school shows: Merv Griffin and that kind of stuff. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Most of the comics that I talk to I've never talked to for more than ten minutes ever. So 95 percent of the time you're really hearing the first conversation between me and that guy on the podcast. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

They used to have a smoking section at most airports. No more. They now have these glass-encased rooms. You're not just a smoker, you're an example to other people. You're an exhibit at a futuristic zoo. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Eugene Mirman

The truth is, for however much my stories come out of things that have happened to me, they're not darkly or as deeply personal as someone like Marc Maron or a lot of comedians, but they are essentially my life and my interpretation of it. — Eugene Mirman

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Get yourself in a situation where you have no choice. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

If you can't afford the good food or if you can't afford health care or if you don't have a job or if your car is dangerous because you can't get it fixed and you DIE, you just lost the game-bzzzzz-thanks for playing extreme capitalism. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

It seems people are more willing to let other people control their minds now and recreational drug use doesn't seem to have that same renegade sense of adventure that it once did. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I used to be jealous; I'm not jealous anymore. And a miracle happened to me, because if you're jealous, it's a cancer, it's a plague on your spirit, it really is. And I actually cured jealousy in a very weird way - I cured it with mathematics. And I'm not a math person at all, but I've been with my wife for about seven years, so we have had sex probably, I'd like to think, like, 9 million times or, at least, 1,500. So, the way I figured it, if she goes out and screws some other guy once - I'm still winning. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I think most other comics are like, "I'm going to do my fkin' act and that'll be that." With me, it's like, "What if I forget my jokes? What if I can't pull it together? This is going to be a fking disaster!" — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

Let's be honest, this is a consumer based economy in America. That's all we manufacture here is need and appetite. We are the world's mouth. They make things in other countries, and they're like, 'Send it to America; they'll eat it.' — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Margaret Maron

Every time we start thinking we're the center of the universe, the universe turns around and says with a slightly distracted air, 'I'm sorry. What'd you say your name was again? — Margaret Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

I'm weird; I have a very strange emotional memory. I really somehow hold on to even passing moments with people. — Marc Maron

Maron Quotes By Marc Maron

For 15 years of my life I smoked, I drank, I used to do drugs ... but during that time, I never once thought I was going to die. But the second I set foot on a stairmaster -the second- I am sure my heart is gonna explode and blood is gonna spray out of my nose. — Marc Maron
