Creative Quotations from . . .
Maxwell Anderson
(1888-1959) born on
Dec 15
US dramatist. His plays include "Key Largo," 1939 and the Pulitzer-winning "Both Your House," 1933.
A dramatist is usually thought of as a slightly benighted child of nature who somehow or other did it all on a Ouija board.

From the point of view of the playwright, then, the essence of a tragedy, or even of a serious play, is the spiritual awakening, or regeneration, of his hero.
Truth's like a fire, and will burn through and be seen.
If you practice an art, be proud of it and make it proud of you. It may break your heart but it will fill your heart before it breaks it; it will make you a person in your own right.
There are some men who lift the age they inhabit, till all men walk on higher ground in that lifetime.
