US dramatist (1905 - 1984)
We are a people who do not want to keep much of the past in our heads. It is considered unhealthy in America to remember mistakes, neurotic to think about them, psychotic to dwell on them.
People change and forget to tell eachother.

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