Me and my pal, we recently caught a staging of Waiting for Godot by ABA Productions, then did the perfectly Beckettish thing of walking out right after Act I, thinking it was the end of the play (hey, nobody said ‘intermission’). The Beckettish worldview can get quite bleak, even if it’s in a tragicomic way, so the idea of viewing Beckett quotes (yes, they actually exist here and here) as motivational ones makes me laugh.
