Edward Albee quotes (16)

A play is fiction - and fiction is fact distilled into truth.
Edward Albee   Category:

American critics are like American universities. They both have dull and half-dead faculties.
Edward Albee   Category:

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.
Edward Albee   Category:

I have a fine sense of the ridiculous, but no sense of humor.
Edward Albee   Category: Humor

I swear, if you existed I'd divorce you.
Edward Albee   Category:

I'm not suggesting that the play is without fault; all of my plays are imperfect, I'm rather happy to say-it leaves me something to do.
Edward Albee   Category:

If Attila the Hun were alive today, he'd be a drama critic.
Edward Albee   Category:

One must let the play happen to one; one must let the mind loose to respond as it will, to receive impressions, to sense rather than know, to gather rather than immediately understand.
Edward Albee   Category:

Remember one thing about democracy. We can have anything we want and at the same time, we always end up with exactly what we deserve.
Edward Albee   Category:

Sometimes a person has to go a very long distance out of his way to come back a short distance correctly.
Edward Albee   Category:

Sometimes it's necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly.
Edward Albee   Category:

The difference between critics and audiences is that one is a group of humans and one is not.
Edward Albee   Category:

The thing that makes a creative person is to be creative and that is all there is to it.
Edward Albee   Category:

What people really want in the theater is fantasy involvement and not reality involvement.
Edward Albee   Category:

You gotta have swine to show you where the truffles are.
Edward Albee   Category:

Your source material is the people you know, not those you don't know, but every character is an extension of the author's own personality.
