A Quote by Brooks Atkinson on evil, good, life, men, and newspapers

The evil that men do lives on the front pages of greedy newspapers, but the good is oft interred apathetically inside.

A Quote by Brooks Atkinson on art, facts, ideas, life, mind, people, sharing, theater, and trying

It seems to me that the thing that makes the theater worthwhile is the fact that it attracts so many people with ideas who are constantly trying to share them with the public. Real art is illumination. It gives a man an idea he never had before or lights up ideas that were formless or only lurking in the shadows of his mind. It adds stature to life.
