LB: Words of Wisdom from a Writer Named After the State I was Born In

And if that ain’t the worst sentence ever written on TVWriter™, I don’t know what is.

Or, in the words of playwright extraordinaire Tennessee Williams:

dt.common.streams.StreamServer“We are all sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life.”

“Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.”

“Hell is yourself and the only redemption is when a person puts himself aside to feel deeply for another person.”

“Enthusiasm is the most important thing in life.”

Southern Quarterly Tennessee Williams cover“What is talent but the ability to get away with something?”

“If I got rid of my demons, I’d lose my angels.”

“I don’t want realism. I want magic!”

“Success and failure are equally disastrous.”

“Don’t look forward to the day you stop suffering, because when it comes you’ll know you’re dead.”

“Friends are God’s way of apologizing to us for our families”

Whenever I read Williams I always think the same thing: How the hell did he learn so much about what it’s like to write for TV?
