Elaine May

A renowned comedian and filmmaker, Elaine May is no stranger to risk-taking. Her improvisational skills are legendary, and after years of dabbling in playwriting and musical comedy, she became one of the first female film directors in Hollywood. Though her 1987 comedy “Ishtar” was an infamous flop, May bounced back through her screenwriting and acting, even picking up a 1998 Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for “Primary Colors.” Her words here encourage us to step outside our comfort zones in pursuit of our dreams, for it’s in relinquishing security that we find our biggest chances to grow.
