Famous quotes containing the words david and/or mamet:

    If men will believe it, sua si bona norint, there are no more quiet Tempes, nor more poetic and Arcadian lives, than may be lived in these New England dwellings. We thought that the employment of their inhabitants by day would be to tend the flowers and herds, and at night, like the shepherds of old, to cluster and give names to the stars from the river banks.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We respond to a drama to that extent to which it corresponds to our dreamlife.
    —David Mamet (b. 1947)
