Famous quotes containing the words arthur miller, miller and/or arthur:

    By whatever means it is accomplished, the prime business of a play is to arouse the passions of its audience so that by the route of passion may be opened up new relationships between a man and men, and between men and Man. Drama is akin to the other inventions of man in that it ought to help us to know more, and not merely to spend our feelings.
    Arthur Miller (b. 1915)

    Until it is kindled by a spirit as flamingly alive as the one which gave it birth a book is dead to us. Words divested of their magic are but dead hieroglyphs.
    —Henry Miller (1891–1980)

    When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)
