and while I'm here...

take some quotes from the play !!


“Be always drunken. Nothing else matters: that is the only question. If you would not feel the horrible burden of Time weighing on your shoulders and crushing you to the earth, be drunken continually.

Drunken with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you will. But be drunken.”

~ Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey Into Night

“None of us can help the things life has done to us. They’re done before you realize it, and once they’re done they make you do other things until at last everything comes between you and what you’d like to be, and you’ve lost your true self forever.”

~ Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey Into Night

"It was a great mistake, my being born a man, I would have been much more successful as a sea gull or a fish. As it is, I will always be a stranger who never feels at home, who does not really want and is not really wanted, who can never belong, who must always be a little in love with death!"

~ Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey Into Night

"It was like walking on the bottom of the sea.. As if I was the ghost belonging to the fog, and the fog was the ghost of the sea. It felt damned peaceful to be nothing more than a ghost within a ghost."

~ Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey Into Night


that's what the imagination's for ;]]

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
