Edward Bond

Art is a prison or it is nothing…My one conviction about art is that it isn’t random—that the imagination is structured and structuring, and produces meaning…You shouldn’t create any piece of art unless there’s no alternative. One should never be ambitious: it gets in the way of one’s mission.

Edward Bond, in a letter to Adrian Noble
