Famous quotes containing the words peter shaffer, shaffer and/or peter:

    Figaro is a bad play. It stirs up hatred between the classes. In France, it has caused nothing but bitterness. My own dear sister, Antoinette, writes me that she is beginning to be frightened of her own people.
    Peter Shaffer (b. 1926)

    Only an idiot would ask Wolfie to work on that stuff—twelve foot snakes, magic flutes.
    —Peter Shaffer (b. 1926)

    It is a necessary condition of one’s ascribing states of consciousness, experiences, to oneself, in the way one does, that one should also ascribe them, or be prepared to ascribe them, to others who are not oneself.... The ascribing phrases are used in just the same sense when the subject is another as when the subject is oneself.
    —Sir Peter Frederick Strawson (b. 1919)
