(David Letterman) has been on the air my entire adult life. Late Night debuted my first year in college. I learned more from watching Dave than I did from going to my classes — especially the ones I did not go to because I had stayed up until 1:30 watching Dave.

This man has influenced every host that came after him, and even a few who came before him — he’s that good.

And I tell you — I do not envy whoever they try to put in that chair.

STEPHEN COLBERT, The Colbert Report (via inothernews)

"The interesting thing about grief, I think, is that it is its own size. It is not the size of you.  It is its own size. And grief comes to you. You know what I mean? I’ve always liked that phrase ‘He was visited by grief’, because that’s really what it is. Grief is its own thing. It’s not like it’s in me and I’m going to deal with it. It’s a thing, and you have to be okay with its presence. If you try to ignore it, it will be like a wolf at your door."

Favorite TCR moment.
