Nelson Rodrigues (1912 – 1980)


Brazilian playwright, journalist and novelist.
Nelson Rodrigues
To save the audience we must fill the stage with murderers, adulterers and madmen; in short, we must fire a salvo of monsters at them. They are our monster which we will temporarily free ourselves from only to face another day.
Rodrigues quotes
Human beings are blind to their own faults. In the movies, villains never proclaim that they are villains. Nor do idiots say that they are idiots. Our faults lie within us, active and fierce, but unconfessed. I've never seen a man walk downstage and announce, his head held high, "Ladies and gentleman, I'm a scumbag!"
Rodrigues
If life turns her back on you, grab her ass.
