Edward Albee, American Playwright
March 12, 1928 - September 16, 2016
"What could be worse than getting to the end of your life and realizing you hadn't lived it?"
"I have been both overpraised and under praised.
I assume by the time I finish writing - and I plan to go on writing until I'm ninety or gaga- it will all equal itself out....You can't involve yourself with the vicissitudes of fashion or critical response."
"Be useful. Be useful. Do something that matters with your life."
Edward Albee, NYC, June 1, 2010.
