Famous quotes containing the word mamet:

    The proclamation and repetition of first principles is a constant feature of life in our democracy. Active adherence to these principles, however, has always been considered un-American. We recipients of the boon of liberty have always been ready, when faced with discomfort, to discard any and all first principles of liberty, and, further, to indict those who do not freely join with us in happily arrogating those principles.
    —David Mamet (b. 1947)

    We Americans have always considered Hollywood, at best, a sinkhole of depraved venality. And, of course, it is. It is not a Protective Monastery of Aesthetic Truth. It is a place where everything is incredibly expensive.
    —David Mamet (b. 1947)

    We respond to a drama to that extent to which it corresponds to our dreamlife.
    —David Mamet (b. 1947)
