Happy Birthday Bobby Frost and that Williams Boy…

Robert Frost by Yousuf Karsh

I have a mind myself and recognize
Mind when I meet with it in any guise
No one can know how glad I am to find
On any sheet the least display of mind.     (from  “A Considerable Speck” by Robert Frost)

Tennessee Williams

“— What is the victory of a cat on a hot tin roof? — I wish I knew

…Just staying on it, I guess, as long as she can …

[More croquet sounds]

Later tonight I’m going to tell you I love you an’ maybe by that time you’ll be drunk enough to believe me. Yes, they’re playing croquet …

Big Daddy is dying of cancer …

What were you thinking of when I caught you looking at me like that? Were you thinking of Skipper?

[Brick crosses to the bar, takes a quick drink, and rubs his head with a towel]

Laws of silence don’t work …When something is festering in your memory or your imagination, laws of silence don’t work, it’s like shutting a door and locking it on a house on fire in hope of forgetting that the house is burning. But not facing a fire doesn’t put it out. Silence about a thing just magnifies it. It grows and festers in silence, becomes malignant ….

Get dressed, Brick.”   ―        (from “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” by Tennessee Williams)
