Fabulous Quotes From Marguerite Duras


Marguerite Duras was a French writer and film director, who's La Vie Matérielle (as well as Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own) is the basis for Irina Brook's upcoming Shakespeare's Sister (or La Vie Matérielle) at La MaMa. 

We've found some fabulous quotes (with the help of www.brainyquote.com) attributed to Duras that we's like to share: 
"Alcohol doesn't console, it doesn't fill up anyone's psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God. It doesn't comfort man. On the contrary, it encourages him in his folly, it transports him to the supreme regions where he is master of his own destiny."

"In love there are no vacations. No such thing. Love has to be lived fully with its boredom and all that." 
"Journalism without a moral position is impossible. Every journalist is a moralist. It's absolutely unavoidable."

"Heterosexuality is dangerous. It tempts you to aim at a perfect duality of desire."

"The best way to fill time is to waste it."

Come see Irina Brook's
