people are so smart

We all go through the fire, and over time, it burns away the good or the bad. The choice is ours.  ~John Patrick Shanley

I remember one time doing a play, and the lead actress took up ALL the space in the room, because I didn’t have enough of a plan, a rehearsal schedule  – we’re doing this scene, then this scene. I remember that she took up most of our time, and the rest of the actors were fit to be tied.  ~Ludovica Villar-Hauser 

Make peace with your past, so it won’t destroy your present.  ~Aleph, Paulo Coelho

Never underestimate the power of a clearly articulated goal which a character pursues with a single-minded tenacity.

The play is in the novel, it’s just hidden. . . . If one is to be lucky in the task of adaptation, first find a novel that has a real play in it, for it’s not so much the skill of the adapter as the skill of the novelist that creates success.  ~Frank Galati

We have become so gun loving, so blasé about home-grown violence that in my lifetime alone, far more Americans have been casualties of domestic gunfire than have died in all our wars combined.  ~Bill Moyers

At times in my life the only place I have been happy is when I am on stage.  ~Bob Dylan

It is not enough to have a good mind; the thing is to use it well.  ~Rene Déscartes

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.  ~J. Krishnamurti

You must write every single day of your life…You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads….may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.  ~Ray Bradbury

It’s not what you’re given, it’s how you take it.  ~Carrie Fisher

‎Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.  ~Ray Bradbury
