„There is no present or future-only the past, happening over and over again-now.“

—  Eugene O'Neill, A Moon for the Misbegotten

Источник: A Moon for the Misbegotten

„They have lost the ideal of the Land of the Free. Freedom demands initiative, courage, the need to decide what life must mean to oneself. To them, that is terror.“

—  Eugene O'Neill

John: Act 3, Scene 2.
Days Without End (1933)
Контексте: I listen to people talking about this universal breakdown we are in and I marvel at their stupid cowardice. It is so obvious that they deliberately cheat themselves because their fear of change won't let them face the truth. They don't want to understand what has happened to them. All they want is to start the merry-go-round of blind greed all over again. They no longer know what they want this country to be, what they want it to become, where they want it to go. It has lost all meaning for them except as pig-wallow. And so their lives as citizens have no beginnings, no ends. They have lost the ideal of the Land of the Free. Freedom demands initiative, courage, the need to decide what life must mean to oneself. To them, that is terror. They explain away their spiritual cowardice by whining that the time for individualism is past, when it is their courage to possess their own souls which is dead — and stinking! No, they don't want to be free. Slavery means security — of a kind, the only kind they have courage for. It means they need not to think. They have only to obey orders from owners who are, in turn, their slaves!

„None of us can help the things life has done to us. They’re done before you realize it, and once they’re done they make you do other things until at last everything comes between you and what you’d like to be, and you’ve lost your true self forever.“

—  Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey into Night

Контексте: But I suppose life has made him like that, and he can't help it. None of us can help the things life has done to us. They're done before you realize it, and once they're done they make you do other things until at last everything comes between you and what you'd like to be, and you've lost your true self forever.

„Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is glue!“

—  Eugene O'Neill, The Great God Brown

Act 4, Scene 1
The Great God Brown (1926)

„We are such things as rubbish is made of, so let's drink up and forget it.“

—  Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey into Night

„It kills the pain. You go back until at last you are beyond its reach. Only the past when you were happy is real.“

—  Eugene O'Neill, Long Day's Journey into Night
