Arthur Miller Sayings: The play is really a kind of nightmare. It ought to flow rapidly and effortlessly from one moment to another.

Arthur Miller Sayings: I'm a writer, and everything I write is both a confession and a struggle to understand things about myself and this world in which I live. This is what everyone's work should be-whether you dance or paint or sing. It is a confession, a baring of your soul, your faults, those things you simply cannot or will not understand or accept. You stumble forward, confused, and you share. If you're lucky, you learn something.
