Guilt is universal.
I don't want realism. I want magic Yes, yes, magic I try to give that to people. I misrepresent things to them. I don't tell the truth, I tell what ought to be the truth. And it that's sinful, then let me be damned for it
If you re goin through he'll.. Keep goin!! You always grow through what you go through.
Accept whatever situation you cannot improve.
Deliberate cruelty is unforgivable.
Hate is a thing, a feeling that can only exist where there is no understanding.
I get melancholy if I don't write. I need the company of people who don't exist.
I'm a poet. And then I put the poetry in the drama. I put it in short stories, and I put it in the plays. Poetry's poetry. It doesn't have to be called a poem, you know.
I think time is a merciless thing. I think life is a process of burning oneself out and time is the fire that burns you. But I think the spirit of man is a good adversary.
