Famous quotes containing the words thornton wilder and/or wilder:

    A dramatist is one who believes that the pure event, an action involving human beings, is more arresting than any comment that can be made upon it.
    Thornton Wilder (1897–1975)

    Love is the hardest thing in the world to write about. So simple. You’ve got to catch it through details, like the early morning sunlight hitting the gray tin of the rain spout in front of her house. The ringing of a telephone that sounds like Beethoven’s “Pastoral.” A letter scribbled on her office stationery that you carry around in your pocket because it smells of all the lilacs in Ohio.
    —Billy Wilder (b. 1906)
