Quote of the Day (Zach Braff, on the Stage as a Place He Belonged)

“I was a melancholic child. Worried, anxious. I never felt as if I belonged anywhere, as if I were a foreign exchange student living among the other kids, who seemed predestined to love sports. Add to that alienation the fact that my parents were going through a divorce, and I was truly treading water. But in that junior high school auditorium, I felt like I’d discovered a secret I didn’t even know was being whispered. There was a place where I might belong: It was the Theater, and I was sold.” —Zach Braff, “An Invisible Boy Keeps His Promise,” The New York Times, March 23, 2014
