Quote of the Day (Jerry Seinfeld, on Twitter, ‘A Horrible Performing Interface’)

“I don’t hear the laugh [on Twitter]. Why waste my time? It’s a horrible performing interface. I can’t think of a worse one. I always think about people that write books. What a horrible feeling it must be to have poured your soul into a book over a number of years and somebody comes up to you and goes, 'I loved your book,' and they walk away, and you have no idea what worked and what didn’t. That to me is hell. That’s my definition of hell." —Stand-up comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld, quoted in Don Amira, “Talk: Jerry Seinfeld Says Jokes Are Not Real Life,” New York Times Magazine, Aug. 19, 2018

Hmm…Does this reflect his own experience with books, like Seinlanguage?
