Oeuvre Quotes


Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.

— Jonson. Come closer. Did you know my family can trace... its peerage back further than any other family in the kingdom? We fought at Crecy,
at Bosworth Field, at Agincourt. When I inherited my earldom... I was one of the richest men ever to breathe English air. And at last breath,
I shall be one of the poorest. Nevervoice in government. Never a sword raised in glorious battle. Words. Merely words shall be my sole legacy. You alone watch my plays and know them as mine. When I hear the applause... the cheering of the audience, the hands clapping... I know they are celebrating another man. But in that... cacophony of sounds, I strained to hear two hands only. Yours. But hear them, I never did. You have never told me... Never... told me what you thought of my work.
— I find... your words... the most... wondrous... heard on our stage. On any stage. Ever. You... are the soul of the age.
