Above video shows the speech intercut with scenes of the movie.

In the bio-pic Walk the Line, we see young Johnny Cash singing a gospel song to Sun Record producer Sam Phillips. Sam stops him and says:

"I don't believe what you're singing. But if you were hit by a truck and were lying out there in the gutter dying and you had time to sing one song. One song people would remember before you were dirt. One song that would let people know about how you felt about your time on earth. One song that would sum you up. Something real. Something you felt. What would that one song be?"

Johnny thinks, then starts singing a song he wrote:  " I hear the train a comin' . It's rolling round the bend. I ain't seen the sunshine, since I don't know when. I'm stuck in Folsom Prison.......".

I hear lots of writers and directors saying, "I got this one idea, and than there's another idea, and I might do this other idea......." I always reply, "Do your last book. Your last movie. Your one ultimate story." If you can't raise the money yet, to make it into a movie, do it as a book. It just takes a computer and time. And if you want to make it a little more special, do it as an Audio-Book. It's just takes an extra thousand dollars, cheaper than a one week vacation.

You can even get a professional sound mix on your computer with recording software. And if you want to make it more special, hire a famous actor to read it. That'll take a few more grand and you must record in a studio. The next time you're at a party and introduce yourself as a writer, director or producer and they say, "What have you done?" You can pull out your book, CD or DVD and give it to them. You can tell them to find it on Amazon (they'll accept it with a ISBN number and a bar code).

That will be the one ultimate project that will sum you up.  Vacations are great, but there is no greater creative satisfaction than "summing yourself up," in a book and being able to hand it out to people that are interested, or being bought by people you don't even know.  

"I see your book a comin'. It's rollin' off the press......."
