It is a wonderful advantage to a man, in every pursuite or avocation, to secure an adviser in a sensible woman. In woman there is at once a subtle delicacy of tact, and a plain soundness of judgement, which are rarely combined to an equal degree in man. A woman, if she be really your friend, will have a sensitive regard for your character, honor, repute. She will seldom counsel you to do a shabby thing: for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you.
The attentions of others matter to us because we are afflicted by a congenital uncertainty as to our own value, as a result of which affliction we tend to allow others’ appraisals to play a determining role in how we see ourselves. Our sense of identity is held captive by the judgements of those we live among.
I know that it is a hopeless undertaking to debate about fundamental value judgements. For instance, if someone approves, as a goal, the extirpation of the human race from the earth, one cannot refute such a viewpoint on rational grounds. But if there is agreement on certain goals and values, one can argue rationally about the means by which these objectives may be obtained.
Economics is a theoretical science and as such abstains from any judgement of value. It is not its task to tell people what ends they should aim at. It is a science of the means to be applied for attainment of ends chosen, not, to be sure, a science of the choosing of ends. Ultimate decisions, the valuations and the choosing of ends, are beyond the scope of any science. Science never tells a man how he should act; it merely shows how a man must act if he wants to attain definite ends.
It took a lot of guts to change it and say ‘I don’t like the life that I’m living and I don’t like the swimmer I am’, so let’s change it completely and say ‘Look, I’ve got to learn to love myself’. And that’s been a really hard thing to do because when you’ve done a performance that you’re not proud of and the public and the media have criticized you…..people are really quick to make judgements so it was tough to say ‘Well I don’t care what you have to say. I’m going to do this for myself and if you don’t like me after this, well then, it’s too bad’.
I remember when I came out of an exam thinking I had done well and then I had a clue that maybe one answer was wrong, I remembered that I rather stop knowing, stop thinking about it, appreciating life instead. So first, it was just a memory. But then I realized that in life, it’s a much more general sentiment – that instead of waiting for other people’s judgment, I’d rather focus on my own feelings, that everything is fine. To go on with my life rather than anticipating other people’s judgements that might be negative.
You do see a few people and you are thinking of how that chemistry is going to work, but it’s not really fair to put people who are auditioning together in a room. You have to make that judgement yourself, and that’s partly where the casting director is so good. It was that blend that we were looking for.
