Die Einsicht hat mich ziemlich früh und ziemlich unbarmherzig erwischt: Es gibt nichts, gar nichts, das ich sagen oder schreiben könnte, ohne dass Dorothy Parker es unendlich viel besser gemacht hätte. Schon irgendwie schade, aber zum Trost ein kleines Zitat von ihr (aus "In the Throes", Life Magazine 1924):

"You wouldn't catch a chambermaid spending the best years of her life sitting at a desk working like a stevedove. They don't write. Maybe some of them do. Maybe they write plays, nights. I wish I could write a play. I wish I had a play all written. I wish it was a good play. I wish it was the best play anybody ever wrote. Ever. Better that 'Hamlet'. That's a good play. And a lot a person can do about writing a play, without any pencil. I'd like to see Eugene O'Neill, even, write a play without a pencil. I wish I was Eugene O'Neill with a pencil."
