Notable Quotable: August Wilson

"Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing." — August Wilson

Pittsburgh-born playwright August Wilson received two Pulitzer Prizes for Drama for The Piano Lesson and Fences (among numerous other awards including the National Humanities medal), both part of his 10-play cycle chronicling African-American life throughout the 20th century.
