A Quote by Eugene Gladstone O'Neill

Why am I afraid to dance? I who love music and rhthym, and grace, and song, and laughter? Why am I afraid to live? I who love life and the beauty of the flesh and the living colors of the earth and the sky and the sea? Why am I afraid to love? I who love love?

A Quote by Eugene O'Neill on unreal, truth, life, and alone

Everything looked and sounded unreal.  Nothing was what it is.  That's what I wanted -- to be alone with myself in another world where truth is untrue and life can hide from itself.

A Quote by Eugene Gladstone O'Neill on danger, needs, and work

A man's work is in danger of deteriorating when he thinks he has found the one best formula for doing it. If he thinks that, he is likely to feel that all he needs is merely to go on repeating himself . . . so long as a person is searching for better ways of doing his work, he is fairly safe.

A Quote by Eugene Gladstone O'Neill on birth, children, disease, men, and poverty

The child was diseased at birth, stricken with a hereditary ill that only the most vital men are able to shake off. I mean poverty - the most deadly and prevalent of all diseases.
