Arthur Miller: What I've Learned

The famed playwright offers up his list of wisdom, gleaned over 87 years. A sample:
I've always done things physical. When I was about six, I made a go-cart. You couldn't steer it and you'd be doing thirty miles an hour down the street, but I remember telling my brother, "Pretty good for my own making." He always used to kid me about that sentence.

Some failures are right. And some people fail because society isn't ready for them. That's what makes it so difficult.

To write any kind of imaginary work, you gotta fall on your sword. You gotta be ready to be blasted out of existence. Lots of times, the blood is on the floor.
