There would seem to be nothing more obvious, more tangible and palpable than the present moment. And yet it eludes us completely. All the sadness of life lies in that fact.

 "As a comedian you should not be in rooms where the people you’re making fun of also are because you’ll realize, at the end of the day, they’re just people. You can’t risk having that kind of compassion infect your mission to attack. My solution to that is not to curve my jokes — it’s to not put myself in the same room as the consequences of those jokes. … A comedian is supposed to be an outsider. He’s supposed to be outside looking in. I don’t want to be at parties in D.C. with politicians. Comedians shouldn’t be there. If you feel comfortable in a room like that, there’s a big problem. That’s what is so concerning when you see journalists so comfortable around politicians — that’s a red flag. There should be a kind of awkward tension whenever a journalist walks into a room that politicians are in, because you should’ve done things that annoyed them in the past. It’s the same as a comedian. You’re no one’s friend.”

Oddly, disappointment is defined by whether what happens is close or not to what we expect. We hear ourselves uttering, ‘That was disappointing’ as opposed to ‘That was a surprise.’ Here, the inner obstacle is really our quick and endless dowry of expectations, which we create and then feel entitled to. As fast as we can think, we create pictures of what we want and where we want to be and how we want to be seen, then hold them out in front of us as some strange form of gold we must have. Expecting life to conform to these images is a perversion of having a goal. It often prevents us from seeing what life freshly brings us. Failure, it seems, is disappointment allowed to root within one’s self-esteem. Yet, after falling down enough, after having things pass through our hands repeatedly, after having so many of life’s blessings arrive from beyond the range of all our schemes and plans, it seems odd to define success or failure by whether we get what we want or by how close we land to where we aim. Quite the contrary, failure would seem to be the limitations that cap our possibilities if we get only what we want and if we touch only what we aim for.
