Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Writing is a journey into the unknown.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Meet me in Montauk...”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “There are too many ideas and things and people. Too many directions to go. I was starting to believe the reason it matters to care passionately about something, is that it whittles the world down to a more manageable size.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Failure is a badge of honor. It means you risked failure. And if you don’t risk failure, you’re never going to do anything that’s different from what you’ve already done or what somebody else has done.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “The world needs you. It doesn’t need you at a party having read a book about how to appear smart at parties – these books exist, and they’re tempting – but resist falling into that trap. The world needs you at the party starting real conversations, saying, ‘I don’t know,’ and being kind.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Sand is overrated. It’s just tiny little rocks.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “When I’m writing, I’m trying to immerse myself in the chaos of an emotional experience, rather than separate myself from it and look back at it from a distance with clarity and tell it as a story. Because that’s how life is lived, you know?”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I just try to be honest, because I think that’s part of my job description as a writer.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I think you just assume that your memory is just sort of a video playback of your experience, but it’s nothing like that at all. It’s a complete refabrication of an event and a lot of it is made up, because you’re filling in spaces.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “There’s theater in life, obviously, and there’s life in theater.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Everything is more complicated than you think. You only see a tenth of what is true.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “There really is only one ending to any story. Human life ends in death. Until then, it keeps going and gets complicated and there’s loss. Everything involves loss; every relationship ends in one way or another.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Do not simplify. Do not worry about failure. Failure is a badge of honour. It means you risked failure.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I have a lot of health anxiety.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “The only way to do something interesting is not care if you fail.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I’m interested in trying to explore what I think is the truth at a given time in my life, and part of the process of being honest is – in my mind – talking about the idea that you’re watching a movie.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “The only honest and generous thing for me to do is to give people myself. That’s all I’ve got as an artist, so I want to do that in an unflinching way.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “There are nearly thirteen million people in the world. None of those people is an extra. They’re all the leads of their own stories. They have to be given their due.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I do like escapism. I like going to the movies on a Friday night and seeing something fun.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “So when I write characters and situations and relationships, I try to sort of utilize what I know about the world, limited as it is, and what I hear from my friends and see with my relatives.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “It’s good when someone comes to a book or a movie and interacts with it. It’s the difference between an illustration and a painting. An illustration serves a specific purpose, and a painting is something you can immerse yourself in.”

Charlie Kaufman Quote: “David Lynch is very important to me, and he does dreamlike movies, but my dreams are not like David Lynch’s dreams. I have no interest in copying anybody’s work. It would never occur to me to want this to look like someone else’s thing.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “The end is built into the beginning.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I will be dying and so will you, and so will everyone here. That’s what I want to explore. We’re all hurtling towards death, yet here we are for the moment, alive. Each of us knowing we’re going to die, each of us secretly believing we won’t.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I hate a movie that will end by telling you that the first thing you should do is learn to love yourself. That is so insulting and condescending, and so meaningless. My characters don’t learn to love each other or themselves.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “We try to organize the world, which isn’t organized the way our brains want to organize it. We tell stories about the people in our lives, we project ideas onto them. We project relationships with people, we make our lives into stories. I don’t think we can avoid doing that.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Everything I’ve written is personal – it’s the only way I know how to write.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I like for people to figure things out for themselves. It’s not like I have the right answer, but if I have a visceral reaction to something, I’m sure that other people will, too.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “The way I work is not the way that you work, and the whole point of any creative act is that. What I have to offer is me, what you have to offer is you, and if you offer yourself with authenticity and generosity I will be moved.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “The passionate ones, the ones who go after what they want, may not get what they want, but they remain vital, in touch with themselves, and when they lie on their deathbeds, they have few regrets.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I’m in my mind a lot. I live there.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Scary is time passing and sickness and dying and regret and isolation and loneliness and relationship problems – as opposed to a guy in a hockey mask, which didn’t seem that scary.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “We’re all hurtling towards death. Yet here we are, for the moment, alive. Each of us knowing we’re going to die. Each of us secretly believing we won’t.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “We are what we love, not what loves us.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I’ve kind of come to the conclusion that what passes for realism in movies has nothing to do with reality and that my stuff is more realistic than that.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I’m old enough, by a long shot, to remember going to the library and spending days researching. If I was looking for a line from a poem or something else I needed, that would be the trip I would have to take.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “When you approach middle age, lots of stuff happens. Your body is aging, you’re watching people around you get sick, you’re watching people die, your mortality becomes very present at that point in your life.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I’m not a celebrity. I’m intentionally and defiantly not a celebrity. I don’t have any interest in it. I don’t have any talent for it. I keep my personal life out of my public life as cleanly as I can.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “Starbucks is the smart coffee for dumb people. It’s the Christopher Nolan of coffee.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I often have a theme in mind when I’m starting. I know that I want everything to be in a world of, say, evolution, or guilt.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “It occurred to me that every work of art is a synecdoche, there’s no way around it. Every creative work that someone does can only represent an aspect of the whole of something. I can’t think of an exception to that.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “I think that people create the world that they live in. Your existence is very subjective, and you tell stories and organize the world outside of you into these stories to help you understand it.”
Charlie Kaufman Quote: “There’s no way to approach anything in an objective way. We’re completely subjective; our view of the world is completely controlled by who we are as human beings, as men or women, by our age, our history, our profession, by the state of the world.”
