Who is eug��ne ionesco?

Famous quotes containing the word ionesco:

    The light of memory, or rather the light that memory lends to things, is the palest light of all.... I am not quite sure whether I am dreaming or remembering, whether I have lived my life or dreamed it. Just as dreams do, memory makes me profoundly aware of the unreality, the evanescence of the world, a fleeting image in the moving water.
    —Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)
