Quotes from the Festival Yesterday:

"Reality shows tend to be very dishonest. If they did it in a different business they could probably be arrested." —James L. Brooks

"Stopping gun violence takes courage, courage to do what's right, courage to take on new ideas. Now is the time to come together, be responsible—Democrats, Republicans, everyone. We must never stop fighting. Fight, fight, fight, be bold, be courageous—the nation is counting on you." —Gabrielle Giffords

"When people ask, 'Where do you see yourself in five years?' I don't have a good answer because I don't think about things that way. And because those things never come true." —Dick Costolo

"For the kids who were brought here as minors, surely we should have the compassion to say these kids shouldn't be kids without a country; we ought to allow them the life they deserve." —Eric Cantor

"The Fourth Amendment is a growth industry for the Supreme Court. We're going to have many of these cases." —Elena Kagan
