Thornton Wilder

Thornton Wilder, winner of the Plitzer Prize and the National book award said, “There’s nothing like eavesdropping to show you that the world outside your head is different from the world inside your head.”

He also was quote as having said: “The test of an adventure is that when you’re in the middle of it, you say to yourself, ‘Oh, now I’ve got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home.’ And the sign that something’s wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.”
