Quote of the Day (Tracy Morgan, With Good Advice)

“We all make mistakes. Don’t beat yourself up. But if you must beat yourself up, don’t use a bat, be gentle, you’ll hurt yourself with that bat. Lorne Michaels told me that one day. I felt really bad on SNL and I was beating myself up, and he started laughing. He grabbed me by my shoulders and said that. And that’s why I love Lorne Michaels like I love my daddy—because he let people do that, and I want to pass that onto others. Don’t beat yourself up, we all make mistakes. You’re only human.” —Comedian/actor Tracy Morgan, interviewed by Brady Langmann, “Tracy Morgan on Why Life Isn’t Always Funny,” in “Sane Advice for Crazy Times: Esquire's 85th Anniversary Issue,” Esquire, October 2018
