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

    It is almost as if you were frantically constructing another world while the world that you live in dissolves beneath your feet, and that your survival depends on completing this construction at least one second before the old habitation collapses.
    Tennessee Williams (1914–1983)

    You know what? Poets are being pursued by the philosophers today out of the poverty of philosophy. God damn it, you might think a man had no business to be writing, to be a poet unless some philosophic stinker gave him permission.
    —William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)
