Drama, instead of telling us the whole of a man's life, must place him in such a situation, tie such a knot, that when it is untied, the whole man is visible.
One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them, to have the right ones form themselves into the proper pattern at the right moment.
Whether or not you write well, write bravely.
Writing is the hardest way of earning a living, with the possible exception of wrestling alligators.
Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those, who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, the melancholia, the panic fear, which is inherent in a human condition.
