Tennessee Williams Quote: “I will read long books and the journals of dead writers. I will feel closer to them than I ever felt to people I used to know before I withdrew from the world. It will be sweet and cool this friendship of mine with dead poets, for I won’t have to touch them or answer their questions. They will talk to me and not expect me to answer. And I’ll get sleepy listening to their voices explaining the mysteries to me. I’ll fall asleep with the book still in my fingers, and it will rain.”

Tennessee Williams Quote: “You two had something that had to be kept on ice, yes, incorruptible, yes! – and death was the only icebox where you could keep it...”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “Later tonight am going to tell you that I love you and maybe by that time you will be drunk enough to believe me.”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “Princess, the great difference between people in this world is not between the rich and the poor or the good and the evil, the biggest of all differences in this world is between the ones that had or have the pleasure in love and those that haven’t and hadn’t any pleasure in love, but just watched it with envy, sick envy. The spectators and the performers.”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “Young, gifted, and destitute...”

Tennessee Williams Quote: “These are the intensities that one cannot live with, that he has to outgrow if he wants to survive. But who can help grieving for them? If the blood vessels could hold them, how much better to keep those early loves with us?”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “Some people say that science clears up all the mysteries for us. In my opinion it only creates more!”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “When things don’t change, their sameness becomes an accretion. That is why all society puts on flesh. Succumbs to the cubicles and begins to fill them.”

Tennessee Williams Quote: “But I think the spirit of man is a good adversary.”

Tennessee Williams Quote: “The human animal is a beast that dies and if he’s got money he buys and buys and buys and I think the reason he buys everything he can buy is that in the back of his mind he has the crazy hope that one of his purchases will be life everlasting! – Which it never can be...”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “I believe the way to write a good play is to convince yourself it is easy to do, then go ahead and do it with ease.”

Tennessee Williams Quote: “Hell is yourself and the only redemption is when a person puts himself aside to feel deeply for another person.”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “I wrote because I had to. I couldn’t stop. There wasn’t anything else I could do. If no one ever bought anything, anything I ever did, I’d still be writing. It’s beyond a compulsion.”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “Most of the confidence which I appear to feel, especially when influenced by noon wine, is only a pretense.”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “If I could just give myself to the steady peace of the rain. That lovely steady peace.”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “To you, whoever you are, when I am gone – remember to be kind tonight to some lonely person. For me.”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “We’re left alone with each other. We have to creep close to each other and give gentle little nudges with our paws and our muzzles before we can slip into sleep and rest for the next day’s playtime.”
Tennessee Williams Quote: “The trouble is that I am being bullied and intimidated by my own success and the fame that surrounds it and what people expect of me and their demands on me. They are forcing me out of my natural position as an artist so that I am in peril of ceasing to be an artist at all. When that happens I will be nothing because I cannot be a professional writer.”
