Diane Cilento

  • Any woman who marries an Italian must accept the undeniable fact that she has also married his mother.

  • When daughters lose their dads, a special link with reality has been severed. Your first protector/disciplinarian/myth-maker has disappeared from your life forever. You're no-one's little girl any more.

Diane Cilento, Australian theater/film actor/director, translator, writer

(1933 - 2011)
