[dry-eyed and dispassionate]

Standard

On Humans – “You are the self-willed puppet of yourself.”

On Characters – “You are created realities, unchangeable creations of the imagination and, therefore, more real and more consistent than the ever-changing naturalness of actors.”

On moments – “Life is full of things that are infinitely absurd; things that, for all their impudent absurdity, have no need to masquerade as truth, for they are true. […] Nature makes use of the instrument of human fantasy to pursue her work of creation on a higher level.”

 

“Ah, but this isn’t the time for your long-winded fairy story, you know.”

 

Six Characters in Search of an Author by Luigi Pirandello (translated by Frederick May)
