Who is eug��ne ionesco?

Famous quotes containing the word ionesco:

    There is nothing truer than myth: history, in its attempt to “realize” myth, distorts it, stops halfway; when history claims to have “succeeded” this is nothing but humbug and mystification. Everything we dream is “realizable.” Reality does not have to be: it is simply what it is.
    —Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)
