Quote by Tony Kushner
I write plays and movies, I live and work at the borderline between word and image just as any cartoonist or illustrator does. I'm not a pure writer. I use words as the score for kinetic imagistic representations.
This quote suggests that the speaker, possibly a playwright or screenwriter, sees themselves as someone who blurs the line between words and visual imagery. Unlike traditional writers, they consider words as a means to create a "score" that guides the creation of visual and dynamic representations in their work. Just like cartoonists or illustrators, their aim is to combine the power of both words and images to bring their ideas to life.
When you forget what you ultimately stand for, you rejoice in blinding ignorance. Missing the bigger picture for the near pleasure is what humans and all living beings stand for. I guess there is no alternate way either. Because it is after all a game that all are destined to play until they end up dead.
