The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola has a direct, honest and sincere way of speaking. He tells production stories on all three Godfather movies via the commentary track on the DVDs.
When he started talking about taking chances with time and money on whatever your dream might be, Coppola said;
"Anything you build on a large scale or with intense passion invites chaos. You have to really be courageous about your instincts and your ideas. Otherwise you'll just knuckle under, and things that might have been memorable will be lost. So don't be afraid to take a risk on your dream. If you give up, you've already lost it, so why not take a chance? You can't do any worse than losing it by giving up."
