“I write because I love to write…. Long years ago when the world was new for me, I dreamed of being a composer–wrote songs, many of them. The words took fire and the music smouldered and so, following the lead of friends and critics, I turned my face toward poetry and put my songs away for a while. Then came drama. I was persuaded to try it and found it a living avenue–and yet–the thing left most unfinished, less exploited, first relinquished, is still nearest my heart and most dear.” –Georgia Douglas Johnson
