Лилиан Хеллман — американская писательница, сценаристка и драматург.


„Люди меняются и забывают сказать об этом друг другу.“

„Кажется, мама делает только то, чего хочет папа, и всё-таки мы живём так, как хочется маме.“


„Цинизм - это неприятный способ говорить правду.“

„Я не могу и не стану подстригать свою совесть по моде сезона.“

„Хорошие манеры трудно сохранить в бедности.“

„Я не могу и не стану подстригать свою совесть по моде сезона.“ Письмо в комиссию по расследованию «антиамериканской деятельности» от 19 мая 1952 года.

„People change and forget to tell each other.“

„I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions.“


„It's a sad day when you find out that it's not accident or time or fortune, but just yourself that kept things from you.“

„I like people who refuse to speak until they are ready to speak.“

„It is best to act with confidence, no matter how little right you have to it.“

„If I had to give young writers advice, I would say don't listen to writers talking about writing or themselves.“


„I'm too old to recover, too narrow to forgive myself.“ The Children's Hour

„Cynicism is an unpleasant way of saying the truth.“

„Old paint on a canvas, as it ages, sometimes becomes transparent. When that happens it is possible, in some pictures, to see the original lines: a tree will show through a woman's dress, a child makes way for a dog, a large boat is no longer on an open sea. That is called pentimento because the painter "repented," changed his mind. Perhaps it would be as well to say that the old conception, replaced by a later choice, is a way of seeing and then seeing again. That is all I mean about the people in this book. The paint has aged and I wanted to see what was there for me once, what is there for me now.“ Pentimento

„Nothing you write, if you hope to be good, will ever come out as you first hoped.“
