Creative Quotations from . . .
Edward Albee
(1928-____) born on
Mar 12
US dramatist. He is known for plays critiquing American society, "The Zoo Story," 1960 and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," 1962.
         
   
F
One must let the play happen to one; one must let the mind loose to respond as it will, to receive impressions to sense rather than know, to gather rather than immediately understand.

R
I have a fine sense of the ridiculous, but no sense of humor.
A
Good writers define reality; bad ones merely restate it. A good writer turns fact into truth; a bad writer will, more often than not, accomplish the opposite.
N
I'm not suggesting that the play is without fault; all my plays are imperfect, I'm rather happy to say - it leaves me something to do.
K
If Attila the Hun were alive today, he'd be a drama critic.
