Creative Quotations from . . .
Robert E. Sherwood
(1896-1955) born on
Apr 04
US playwright. His works reflect involvement in human problems, both social and political.
         
   
F
He must be a chaser of wild geese, as well as of wild ducks. He must be prepared to make a public spectacle of himself.

R
The trouble with me is, I belong to a vanishing race. I'm one of the intellectuals.
A
It is disappointing to report that George Bernard Shaw appearing as George Bernard Shaw is sadly miscast in the part. Satirists should be heard and not seen.
N
To be able to write a play . . . a man must be sensitive, imaginative, naive, gullible, passionate; he must be something of an imbecile, something of a poet, something of a liar, something of a damn fool.
K
He must be independent and brave, and sure of himself and of the importance of his work, because if he isn't he will never survive the scorching blasts of derision that will probably greet his first efforts.
