Who has what to say?

A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. That’s why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers seldom meet. ~ Truman Capote

I love writing dialogue, and I think a lot of my writing is visual and very cinematic. ~ Jessica Hagedorn

Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.~ Alfred Hitchcock

With all of the qualities of the scene-setting, the dialogue, the place and time and the time and place in which your characters move. And I want to move with the characters, move with them and describe the world in which they are living. ~ Gay Talese

A pas de deux is a dialogue of love. How can there be conversation if one partner is dumb? ~ Rudolf Nureyev
