I Love My Enemies

Paul Newman once said, “If you don’t have any enemies, you don’t have any character?”

Who is Paul Newman? He was an actor, race car driver, and owner of a spaghetti sauce company.

What does that mean?

Does that mean if you want character, you need to walk up to every person you meet and throw spaghetti sauce in their face?

No.

It means if you want character, you’ll have to walk up to every person you meet and say, “I love anchovy spaghetti sauce, and I think NASCAR is the greatest sport on Earth.”

Or in other words, it means if you want character, you’ll open yourself to criticism, you’ll make yourself vulnerable, you’ll stick up for what you believe in. Or in my case you’ll grow a mustache.

And when people tell you, “I hate anchovy spaghetti sauce, NASCAR, and YOUR MUSTACHE”, you’ll simply smile and say, “I love anchovy spaghetti sauce, NASCAR, my mustache, and you.”

“I’m sorry to hear that you don’t like my mustache. That’s OK, I own a fucking spaghetti sauce company. What do you do? Oh that’s right you eat my spaghetti sauce.” – Paul Newman, 1983
