“The trouble is if you don’t spend your life yourself, other people spend it for you.”
Peter Shaffer, Five Finger Exercise: A Play

“If London is a watercolor, New York is an oil painting.”
Peter Shaffer

“He'll be delivered from madness. What then? He'll feel himself acceptable! What then? Do you think feelings like his can be simply re-attached, like plasters? Stuck on to other objects we select? Look at him! ... My desire might be to make this boy an ardent husband - a caring citizen - a worshipper of abstract and unifying God. My achievement, however, is more likely to make a ghost!”
Peter Shaffer, Equus
