Aaron Sorkin
When we were doing 'The West Wing,' the hardest thing about doing 'The West Wing' was being compared to yourself. You go out there and want every episode to be as good as your best episode. I wrote 88 episodes of 'The West Wing,' and when you do that, one of them is going to be your 88th best, so your 88th best better be pretty good.
Aaron Sorkin
It's important to remember that, first and foremost, if not only, this is entertainment. 'The West Wing' isn't meant to be good for you.
Aaron Sorkin
I don't have a great instrument. I don't have the kind of ungodly control over my voice and body that great actors have. And I've worked with enough great actors to know that I'm not one.
Aaron Sorkin
Writing never comes easy. The difference between Page 2 and Page Nothing is the difference between life and death.
Aaron Sorkin
I've always thought that there is a great female James Bond movie to be done. I'm not literally calling her Jane Bond, I mean, but a female secret agent.
Aaron Sorkin
I've never written anything that I haven't wanted to write again. I want to, and still am, writing 'A Few Good Men' again. I didn't know what I was doing then, and I'm still trying to get it right. I would write 'The Social Network' again if they would let me, I'd write 'Moneyball' again. I would write 'The West Wing' again.
Aaron Sorkin
Don't ever forget that a small group of thoughtful people can change the world, it's the only thing that ever has.
Aaron Sorkin
I can't remember my dreams more than a couple of seconds after I wake up. It's frustrating because sometimes I dream that I'm watching a really good movie.
Aaron Sorkin
'Steve Jobs' is my seventh movie. I believe, if you added them up, I don't think there is more than a total of 10 minutes that takes place in a person's home. They're all in offices, courtrooms, laboratories, things like that.
Aaron Sorkin
The rules of drama are very much separate from the properties of life. I think that's especially true of Shakespeare.
Aaron Sorkin
'Molly's Game' was a true story about a remarkable young woman named Molly Bloom. She was this close to going to the Olympics; she was ranked third in North America in women's moguls.

Aaron Sorkin
While I was doing 'The Newsroom,' I always had the news on on different networks on different TVs around my house and around my office.

If you lined up 10 writers and asked them to write a movie about Steve Jobs, you'd get 10 very different movies.
Aaron Sorkin
With 'The Social Network,' I got into it at first because frankly I thought there was a cool courtroom drama to be had with the intellectual properties. And then what further drew me in was that the most extraordinary social networking device ever created was created by the world's most antisocial person. I liked that story.
Aaron Sorkin
Any time you get two people in a room who disagree about anything, the time of day, there is a scene to be written. That's what I look for.
Aaron Sorkin
I'm more comfortable writing traditional protagonists. But 'Steve Jobs' and 'The Social Network' have antiheroes. I like to write antiheroes as if they're making their case to God about why they should be allowed into heaven. I have to find something in that character that is like me and write to that.
