Aaron Sorkin's Quotes

  • I love writing but hate starting. The page is awfully white and it says, "You may have fooled some of the people some of the time but those days are over, giftless. I'm not your agent and I'm not your mommy, I'm a white piece of paper, you wanna dance with me?" and I really, really don't. I'll go peaceable-like.
  • [speaking about freebased cocaine] I had found a drug I absolutely love and that gave me a real break from a certain nervous tension that I kind of carry with me moment to moment.
  • When things that are very mean-spirited and voyeuristic go on TV, I think it's [like] bad crack in the schoolyard.
  • When I am setting out to do something, I don't consider the state of the culture. I can't possibly conceive of what the most people are going to like. Honest to God, I write something that I like, that I think my friends would like and that I think my father would like, and I keep my fingers crossed that enough other people are going to like it that I can earn a living.
  • I am all for everyone having a voice, I just don't think everyone has earned the microphone. And that's what the Internet has done.

Interesting Facts about Aaron Sorkin

  2. In 19 June 2001, a judge sentenced him to a drug-diversion program as a result of his arrest at a California airport for carrying marijuana, rock cocaine and hallucinogenic mushrooms.
  3. His daughter, Roxy Sorkin, was born November 17, 2000.
  4. Graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA in Musical Theatre.
  5. Wrote a 1988 Rolling Stone Magazine article about the top acting schools in the U.S. One of the featured schools was the State University of New York at Purchase (S.U.N.Y. Purchase) where Janel Moloney ("Donna" on The West Wing (1999)) happened to be attending at the time.
  6. Many of his works contain references to the operas of Gilbert & Sullivan. In Malice (1993), the doctor played by Alec Baldwin boasts that he is "never, ever sick at sea", lyrics from "The HMS Pinafore". In The West Wing (1999), Sam Seaborn (Rob Lowe) says that he was recording secretary of the Princeton Gilbert & Sullivan society, and many of the regular characters welcome Ainsley Hayes (Emily Procter) to her new office by decorating it with G&S posters and singing "He is an Englishman", also from "Pinafore", to her. The second episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006) closes with the cast of the show-within-the-show singing a parody of "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General" from "The Pirates of Penzance". In Charlie Wilson's War (2007), he gives Gust a throwaway line of "...and I'm never, never sick at sea", which is a line from "HMS Pinafore".
  7. He is considered one of Scarsdale High School's "Distinguished Alumni." His picture hangs among the other alumni near the school's cafeteria.
  8. His sister, Deborah Sorkin, is a Navy Judge Advocate General, who worked with David Iglesias. She told Aaron about a real-life case she had worked on with David, which became the basis of A Few Good Men (1992). The character played by Demi Moore was based on his sister. David Iglesias was a Republican, who would later gain fame as one of the U.S. Attorneys fired by the George W. Bush administration.
  9. All of his four television shows feature a season finale episode entitled "What kind of day has it been?".

  12. Sorkin seems to have an affinity for Nobel prize-winning economists. His fictional President in The American President (1995), "Andrew Shepherd", studied under a Nobel prize-winning economist. His President on The West Wing (1999), "Jed Bartlet", actually was a Nobel prize-winning economist.
