There are so many great quotes in literature. I chose this one because it’s been popping up in my head lately for a variety of reasons. I love how it perfectly captures the complexity of Tennessee Williams’ character Blanche DuBois — her charged sexuality, overwhelming loneliness, fear, longing, isolation, and clinging to shadows. My favorite Blanche DuBois is actress Vivien Leigh. What’s one of your favorite quotes from literature? I’d love to know!
