why Godot?

Originally written in French, by Irish writer Samuel Beckett:

Waiting for Godot is a stunning piece of writing. I first read it when I was about sixteen, it had a profound effect on me then, and it still does today. I've studied it, performed in it, directed it and now I use extracts from the text [the extract in the previous post to be precise] in my paintings:

That's why.
