Alan Bennett

English playwright, screenwriter, actor and author.
The thing I think about is that once you've done it, you then start to think about what you're going to do next. It's much easier to follow something that's not been as successful as this.More Alan Bennett quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The majority of people perform well in a crisis and when the spotlight is on them; it's on the Sunday afternoons of this life, when nobody is looking, that the spirit falters.More Alan Bennett quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It [Cambridge] wasn't a holy grail in the sense that I'd never been to Cambridge. But then, when I did go, the contrast between Leeds, which was very black and sooty in those days, and Cambridge, which seemed like something out of a fairystory, in the grip of a hard frost, was just wonderful.More Alan Bennett quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Books are not about passing the time. They're about other lives. Other worlds.More Alan Bennett quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But most men regard their life as a poem that women threaten. They may not have two spondees to rub together but they still want to pen their saga untrammelled by life-threatening activities like trailing round Sainsbury's, emptying the dishwasher or going to the nativity play.More Alan Bennett quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
