David Rabe quotes

Often my characters don't know what the issues of the play are. They think they're doing one thing, but something else is actually orchestrating their lives.

I never found a professional environment that made the production of plays efficient. Teamwork is demanded, but there are very few teams.

Choosing to write a play is some kind of surrender. I don't make an outline. I sit and work, and suddenly the door opens, and out it comes.

My writing was liberated once I abandoned acting.

Sometimes it's learning how the play wants to function rather than imposing something on it. For me, that's the thrill in directing.

There's no demand for a body of work, though writers will be criticized for not having produced one.

I wrestled with my Catholicism for a long time. It took a long time to escape. It began with a sense that it was repressive, stern, judgmental. It was passionate, but it was terrifying. There were individual priests and nuns who were helpful, but the religion was cold.

I never understood a word John Cassavetes said. And I think he did that deliberately. Peter Falk bio

Most people have a blank slate and can start from nothing. But for me, I had to break a bad habit that I've been doing all of my life, which is freestyle hip-hop. Roshon Fegan

Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right for life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold. Brad Pitt age
