Love is the only disease that makes you feel better  (Sam Shepard Quotes) When you die it’s the end of your life  (Sam Shepard Quotes) Sometimes in someone’s gestures you can notice how a parent is somehow inhabiting that person without there being any awareness of that. Sometimes you can look at your hand and see your father.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) I was shot in the wrist when I was a kid. Deliberately  (Sam Shepard Quotes) The words I overuse are all adverbs  (Sam Shepard Quotes) Sides are being divided now. It’s very obvious. So if you’re on the other side of the fence, you’re suddenly anti-American. It’s breeding fear of being on the wrong side  (Sam Shepard Quotes) It’s one of the great tragedies of our contemporary life in America, that families fall apart. Almost everybody has that in common  (Sam Shepard Quotes) In real life we don’t know what’s going to happen next. So how can you be that way on a stage? Being alive to the possibility of not knowing exactly how everything is going to happen next - if you can find places to have that happen onstage, it can resonate with an experience of living  (Sam Shepard Quotes) All that stuff about my father and my childhood is interesting up to a certain point, but I kind of capsized with the family drama a long time ago. Now I want to get away from that. Not that I won’t return to it, but a certain element has been exhausted, and it feels like why regurgitate all this stuff?  (Sam Shepard Quotes) People talk about the 1960s in a nostalgic way, but to me it was terrifying. People were getting assassinated. There was Vietnam. There were race riots. It felt like everything was going to get blown up sky-high. It didn’t feel like flower power. It felt like Armageddon  (Sam Shepard Quotes) On stage, you’re not limited at all because you’re free in language: language is the source of the imagination. You can travel farther in language than you can in any film.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) The thing about American writers is that, as a group, they get stuck in the same idea: that we’re a continent and the world falls away after us. And it’s just nonsense.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) It’s funny, in a way the actor is a writer. It’s not like the two things are so separate as to be like apples and oranges. The writer and the actor are one.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) Beginnings are definitely the most exciting, middles are perplexing and endings are a disaster  (Sam Shepard Quotes) Democracy’s a very fragile thing. You have to take care of democracy. As soon as you stop being responsible to it and allow it to turn into scare tactics, it’s no longer democracy, is it? It’s something else. It may be an inch away from totalitarianism.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) I feel very lucky and privileged to be a writer. I feel lucky in the sense that I can branch out into prose and tell different kinds of stories and stuff. But being a writer is so great because you’re literally not dependent on anybody.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) I believe in my mask-- The man I made up is meI believe in my dance-- And my destiny  (Sam Shepard Quotes) We’re being sold a brand new idea of patriotism. It never occurred to me that patriotism had to be advertised. Patriotism is something you deeply felt. You didn’t have to wear it on your lapel or show it in your window or on a bumper sticker. That kind of patriotism does not appeal to me at all.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) The great thing for me, now, is that writing has become more and more interesting. Not just as a craft but as a way into things that are not described. It’s a thing of discovering. That’s when writing is really working. You’re on the trail of something, and you don’t quite know what it is.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) When I just sit around my house and work, I can work two, three hours, and then I go off and ride a horse or do something that I perceive to be a lot more fun.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) Caryl Churchill is a writer of some note, but in the sack, she makes me explain everything  (Sam Shepard Quotes) There are places where writing is acting and acting is writing. I’m not so interested in the divisions. I’m interested in the way things cross over.  (Sam Shepard Quotes) Hollywood is geared toward teenage idiocy  (Sam Shepard Quotes) I think without writing I would feel completely useless  (Sam Shepard Quotes) You can’t make a living as a playwright. You can barely scrape by  (Sam Shepard Quotes) There’s gonna be a general lack of toast in the neighborhood this morning  (Sam Shepard Quotes) Ideas emerge from plays, not the other way around  (Sam Shepard Quotes) When you hit a wall – of your own imagined limitations – just kick it in  (Sam Shepard Quotes) Words are tools of imagery in motion  (Sam Shepard Quotes) I feel very lucky and privileged to be a writer. I feel lucky in the sense that I can branch out into prose and tell different kinds of stories and stuff. But being a writer is so great because you’re literally not dependent on anybody  (Sam Shepard Quotes)
