Drama Quotes

The drama embraces and applies all the beauties and decorations of poetry. The sister arts attend and adorn it. Painting, architecture, and music are her handmaids. The costliest lights of a people's intellect burn at her show. All ages welcome her.

Robert Aris Willmott

The real object of the drama is the exhibition of the human character.

Thomas Babington Macaulay

The drama of life begins with a wail and ends with a sigh.

Mina Thomas Antrim

Drama is theater, life, an escape from life, happiness, and sadness all rolled into one.

Rebekah Adams

Drama is like life with the dull bits cut out.

Alfred Hitchcock

Soccer is not about justice. It’s a drama, and criminally wrong decisions against you are part and parcel of that.

Pete Davies

To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air; the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.

Eleanor Duse

Perhaps passing through the gates of death is like passing quietly through the gate in a pasture fence. On the other side, you keep walking, without the need to look back. No shock, no drama, just the lifting of a plank or two in a simple wooden gate in a clearing. Neither pain, nor floods of light, nor great voices, but just the silent crossing of a meadow.

Mark Helprin

Drama is based on the Mistake. I think someone is my friend when he really is my enemy, that I am free to marry a woman when in fact she is my mother, that this person is a chambermaid when it is a young nobleman in disguise, that this well-dressed young man is rich when he is really a penniless adventurer, or that if I do this such and such a result will follow when in fact it results in something very different. All good drama has two movements, first the making of the mistake, then the discovery that it was a mistake.

W. H. Auden

Let us never, never forget that we are the masters of our destiny. No one in all the universes writes our script. We do that, in co-creation with our brothers. As we rewrite our script, our brother must do likewise or leave the stage of our drama.

Peter Erbe

The drama is the looking-glass in which we see the hideousness of vice and the beauties of virtue.

Frances Anne

To see your drama clearly is to be liberated from it.

Ken Keyes

Acted drama requires surrender of one's self, sympathetic absorption in the play as it develops.

George P Baker

Drama is every aspect of life.

Danielle Body

A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.
