Waiting For Godot

ancient rollover, originally uploaded by fatal Cleopatra.

Saying is inventing. Wrong, very rightly wrong. You invent nothing, you think you are inventing, you think you are escaping, and all you do is stammer out your lesson, the remnants of a pensum one day got by heart and long forgotten, life without tears, as it is wept.
–Molloy, Part I

We are all born mad. Some remain so.
–Waiting for Godot

He stopped crying. You have replaced him as it were. The tears of the world are a constant quantity. For each one who begins to weep somewhere else another stops. The same is true of the laugh. Let us not then speak ill of our generation, it is not any unhappier than its predecessors. Let us not speak well of it either. Let us not speak of it at all. It is true the population has increased.
–Waiting for Godot

Quotes from the work of Samuel Beckett
