Dick Wolf Quotes:

It’s show business. No show, no business.

I was raised not to be rude, but I also try to get the best work out of people.

I try to just communicate what I want done as clearly and simply as possible.

I would say that if you really wished to be a working member of the community, don’t go out on strike because then there’s no work and no potential of work.

As soon as you become complacent your show gets canceled.

Their argument is that most shows are losers, which is true, but it’s also disingenuous to say, ‘We are not going to take the risk unless it is totally covered by the few successful shows that are out there.‘”
