Whoever aims to write plays chiefly or wholly because he would like fame or money or because he wishes to show that he is as strong in one fictional art as another,- the story, the essay, the poem, whatever it may be,- in fact he who writes plays for any other reason than that he cannot be happy except in writing plays, better give over such writing.- "Dramatic Technique", George Pierce Baker.
