  • ⋅Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go. /Brooks Atkinson

  • ⋅The only important thing a writer needs is a subject. What the reader hungers after is not accomplished craftsmanship nor even correct grammar but a frank report of the things a writer has done, seen, and thought. None of these can be learned in the library or classroom. They have to be learned in the unsheltered world of living where me get slivers of the truth beaten into their heads. /Brooks Atkinson
  • ⋅When Mr. Wilbur calls his play 'Halfway to Hell,' he underestimates the distance. /Brooks Atkinson
  • ⋅Good plays drive bad playgoers crazy. /Brooks Atkinson
  • ⋅In the 1920s dramatists attacked their subjects as if the inequities could be resolved. Some of the traditional optimism of America lurked behind most of the early plays. But not now. There is no conviction now that the problem will be solved. /Brooks Atkinson
  • ⋅Ethel Waters, the flaming tower of dusky regality, who knows how to make a song stand on tiptoe. /Brooks Atkinson
  • ⋅Every man with an idea has at least two or three followers. /Brooks Atkinson
  • ⋅The perfect bureaucrat everywhere is the man who manages to make no decisions and escape all responsibility. /Brooks Atkinson
  • ⋅The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking /Brooks Atkinson
