Glass breaks so easily
(…) Glass breaks so easily. No matter how careful you are. (…)
(…) You don’t know things anywhere! You live in a dream: you manufacture illusions. (…)
(…) I know I seem dreamy, but inside – well, I’m boiling! Whenever I pick up a shoe,
I shudder a little thinking how short life is and what I am doing! Whatever that means,
I know it doesn’t mean shoes — except as something to wear on a traveler’s feet! (…)
(…) I didn’t go to the moon, I went much further — for time is the longest distance between
(…) Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve.
But I am the opposite of a stage magician.
He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth.
I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.(…)
The Glass Menagerie, Tennessee Williams
