The playwright, Eugene O’Neil said of himself

I’m far from being a pessimist. I see life as a gorgeously-ironical, beautifully-indifferent, splendidly-suffering bit of chaos the tragedy of which gives Man a tremendous significance, while without his losing fight with fate he would be a tepid, silly animal. I say ‘losing fight’ only symbolically for the brave individual always wins. Fate can never conquer his-or her-spirit. So you see, I’m no pessimist. On the contrary, in spite of my scars, I’m tickled to death with life!
