Famous quotes containing the words tennessee williams and/or williams:

    Oh, Jacques, we’re used to each other, we’re a pair of captive hawks caught in the same cage, and so we’ve grown used to each other. That’s what passes for love at this dim, shadowy end of the Camino Real.
    Tennessee Williams (1914–1983)

    What is more pretentiously
    useless
    or about which
    we more pride ourselves?
    It leads as often as not
    to our undoing.
    —William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)
