Thornton Wilder
“Yes, now you know. Now you know! That's what it was to be alive. To move about in a cloud of ignorance; to go up and down trampling on the feelings of those...of those about you. To spend and waste time as though you had a million years. To be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion, or another. Now you know — that's the happy existence you wanted to go back to. Ignorance and blindness.”
Thornton Wilder, Our Town

Thornton Wilder, Our Town

Thornton Wilder
“So - people a thousand years from now...This is the way we were: in our growing up and in our marrying and in our living and in our dying.”
Thornton Wilder
