ESTRAGON: I can't go on like this. VLADIMIR: That's what you think.

Never but the one matter. The dead and gone. The dying and going. From the word go.
Samuel Beckett

I cannot explain my plays. Each must find out for himself what is meant

Samuel Beckett
Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, I grant you that… Yes, yes, it's the most comical thing in the world. And we laugh, we laugh, with a will, in the beginning. But it's always the same thing. Yes, it's like the funny story we have heard too often, we still find it funny, but we don't laugh any more.
Samuel Beckett

It is useless not to seek, not to want, for when you cease to seek you start to find, and when you cease to want, then life begins to ram her fish and chips down your gullet until you puke, and then the puke down your gullet until you puke the puke, and then the puked puke until you begin to like it.

Samuel Beckett
