    Serendipity communicates with prepared minds, in my view, often leading to miraculous creations and inventions. Serendipity will dance with you if you're already on the dance floor.

So get on the dance floor right away, and have a good dance with Serendipity when your moment arrives.

  5. Paul Reiser today .:

    That was the goal, if you could get on the ‘ Tonight Show, ’ that was the standard. So The Tonight Show felt like a great validation … I had played The Tonight Show in my mind so many times, so when I finally got The Tonight Show, The Tonight Show felt surprisingly comfortable. And then when we recreated the set for The Tonight Show, it was eerie … Because I knew what it felt like to sit on that couch. It was electrifying. If you’re a young comedian, but someone has never heard of you, if you’ve done the' Tonight Show, ’ then people think you must be good. That was the only currency people understood. Certainly my parents did. For them, The Tonight Show was like, ‘ All right, he spent all those years staying up late in clubs and making $ 7 a week, but now he must be OK because he was on' The Tonight Show. ’ There was no other show that had that stamp of approval.
