“I am a writer. I suppose I think that the highest gift that a man has is art, and I am audacious enough to think of myself as an artist-that there is both joy and beauty and illumination and communion between people to be achieved through the dissection of personality. That’s what I want to do. I want to reach a little closer to the world, which is to say to people, and see if we can share some illuminations together about each other.”

– Lorraine Hansberry
