Ewan Quotes

I have loved and been loved. I love and am loved. I have been engaged throughout my life in work that I love. I wanted to write plays and I did so. I wanted to work in a theater which I helped to create and I did so. I wanted to write songs and sing and I have done that too. How many people are given the chance of fulfilling their desires? - Ewan MacColl


Ewan MacColl

Ewan MacColl, co-founder of a workers' experimental theatre in Manchester, playwright, songwriter, collaborator in the Radio Ballads, cofounder of the Critics Group.
