we are saved only by love


The world is

violent and mercurial —

it will have its way with you.

We are saved only by love — love for

each other and the love that we pour into the art

we feel compelled to share: being a parent; being a writer;

being a painter; being a friend. We live in a perpetually

burning building, and what we must

save from it, all the time,

is love.


Tennessee Williams
