Literary Birthday – 27 November – Callie Khouri

Happy Birthday, Callie Khouri, born 27 November 1957.

Five Quotes

  1. I love to start characters in a place where you think you know them. We can make all kinds of assumptions about them and think they have no redeeming qualities, but like everyone, they’re complex.
  2. When people know I wrote Thelma and Louise, they don’t want to mess with me.
  3. Don’t let your failures define you. Let them refine you.
  4. Always, in all circumstances, wear comfortable shoes. You never know when you may have to run for your life.
  5. Would you have a friend who talks to you the way you talk to yourself?

Callie Khouri is an American film and television screenwriter, producer and director. She won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay for Thelma and Louise.
