    Really? This seems completely unlikely as an actual real life quote–more like something a publicist made up.

    Apparently, not a publicist.

    Thank you, Sal! I love this, and frankly, I don’t care who said it–it’s a great thought to remember. I’ve noticed something similar in my work. I teach people to play instruments. When their posture is bad, I ask why they are going to the clarinet, rather than bringing it to them. “Who is more important, the clarinet or you?” Every time, they say, “The clarinet.” Every time, I react in shock and say, “NO! You are important! Don’t forget that. If your clarinet were run over by a truck, it would be a disappointment. If you were run over by a truck, it would be devastating.” We need these reminders. :)

    Love the graphic, too. Pinned on the Average and Plus Sized Empowerment board on Pinterest.

    Good Reads isn’t citing any sources–where did he say or write this?

      You seriously expect sources for a quote like this? When have you ever seen a clever comment sourced? Politicians, maybe, but not people of fashion. Why are you pressing this issue? Give it a break.
