Quotations related to religion


Edward Albee, interviewed by San Francisco Chronicle (6/2/11, p. F3) about his play “Tiny Alice.”

The play is “about all religions that we create in our own image and the personifications that we make.  I’m convinced that the only thing that can be worshiped is that which is unimaginable–which is why the Mass was always more effective in Latin.  Nobody spoke Latin.  I made the mistake of reading it in English.”

Were you raised in a religion?
“No, I was raised in the Episcopal church.”

what do you think Albee means by that?
