Edward Albee was born 12 March 1928 and died 16 September 2016.
- The most profound indication of social malignancy … no sense of humour. None of the monoliths could take a joke.
- A play is fiction – and fiction is fact distilled into truth.
- Few sensible authors are happy discussing the creative process — it is, after all, black magic, and may lose its power if we look that particular gift horse too closely in the mouth.
- Sincerity doesn’t mean anything. A person can be sincere and be more destructive than a person who is insincere.
- What I mean by an educated taste is someone who has the same tastes that I have.
- 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.
- What people really want in the theatre is fantasy involvement and not reality involvement.
