Quote of the Day (Ethan Hawke, on Soul Mates)

"I sometimes resist the notion of a soul mate. It creates this idea for people who are single that there is something missing, which I don't think is true. We all have this idea that romantic love is going to save us, and people can rely on that to not take care of themselves. But it’s like being born Michael Jordan.  Not everybody gets to be that fast, or do that, and it doesn't mean my life is less because I'm not Michael Jordan. Do you know what I mean?"—Actor Ethan Hawke quoted in “Intelligencer/Party Lines,” New York, May 6, 2013
