Quote For The Weekend (Early Edition As Leaving Town For Environs W/No Internet)

LilliIf you believe, as the Greeks did, that man is at the mercy of the gods, then you write tragedy. The end is inevitable from the beginning. But
if you believe that man can solve his own problems and is at nobody’s mercy,
then you will probably write melodrama.

—Lillian Hellman
