    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    This is the end, the redemption from Wilderness, way for the
    Wonderer, House sought for All, black handkerchief washed clean by
    weeping—page beyond Psalm—Last change of mine and Naomi—to Gods perfect Darkness—Death, stay thy phantoms!
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    The director is simply the audience. So the terrible burden of the director is to take the place of that yawning vacuum, to be the audience and to select from what happens during the day which movement shall be a disaster and which a gala night. His job is to preside over accidents.
    Orson Welles (1915–1984)

    Any committee that is the slightest use is composed of people who are too busy to want to sit on it for a second longer than they have to.
    Katharine Whitehorn (b. 1926)
