Quote of the Day (Thornton Wilder, on Art as Confession)

“Art is confession; art is the secret told. . . . But art is not only the desire to tell one's secret; it is the desire to tell it and hide it at the same time. And the secret is nothing more than the whole drama of the inner life.”—Playwright/novelist Thornton Wilder, quoted in Penelope Niven, Thornton Wilder: A Life (2012)
