„Keď ti niekto povie, lásky sa vzdaj, kopni ho do papule a utekaj!!!“

„Starí ľudia mnohokrát radšej zomrú, pretože nik pre nich nemá milé slovo.“


„You're alive only once, as far as we know, and what could be worse than getting to the end of your life and realizing you hadn't lived it?“

„What I mean by an educated taste is someone who has the same tastes that I have.“

„I write to find out what I'm talking about.“

„What could be worse than getting to the end of your life and realizing you hadn't lived it“

„Sometimes it's necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly.“

„I said I was impressed, Martha. I'm beside myself with jealousy. What do you want me to do, throw up?“ Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?


„Martha: Truth or illusion, George; you don't know the difference.
George: No, but we must carry on as though we did.
Martha: Amen.“
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

„Dashed hopes and good intentions. Good, better, best, bested.“ Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

„I am not interested in living in a city where there isn't a production by Samuel Beckett running.“

„It's one of those things a person has to do; sometimes a person has to go a very long distance out of his way to come back a short distance correctly.“ The American Dream & The Zoo Story


„George, who is out somewhere there in the dark, who is good to me - whom I revile, who can keep learning the games we play as quickly as I can change them. Who can make me happy and I do not wish to be happy. And yes, I do wish to be happy. George and Martha: Sad, sad, sad. Whom I will not forgive for having come to rest; for having seen me and having said: “Yes, this will do”. Who has made the hideous, the hurting, the insulting mistake of loving… me, and must be punished for it. George and Martha… Sad, sad, sad.“ Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

„Good writers define reality; bad ones merely restate it. A good writer turns fact into truth; a bad writer will, more often than not, accomplish the opposite.“

„If you have no wounds, how can you know if you're alive?“ The Play About the Baby

„You want to dance with me, angel tits?“ Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
