Reading the transcript of the Jay Bernstein interview I found this moving moment when the legend contemplates his professional and personal loneliness.
“I had a conversation with Michael Moore a while back. I said to him you are like me. We run on compliments. We fill our tank with compliments from people. We have what we need to keep going. Success? This is a very lonely painful place. I feel happy for Steve (addressing fellow PR Steve Jaffe who was also present in the room) who I’m very fond of as he has Susan (Blakely) I don’t have anybody. It’s difficult to go through stuff without a partner. I sacrificed that for my work. My clients were all my children.”
