“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Samuel Beckett (Irish Playwright)
Date of Birth:

22 December 1989
Samuel Barclay Beckett was an Irish writer, dramatist and poet.
Beckett's work is stark and fundamentally minimalist. As a follower of James Joyce, Beckett is considered by many one of the last modernists; as an inspiration to many later writers, he is considered one of the first postmodernists. He is also considered one of the key writers in what Martin Esslin called "Theatre of the Absurd".
