    I think I love and reverence all arts equally, only putting my
    own just above the others; because in it I recognize the union
    and culmination of my own. To me it seems as if when God
    conceived the world, that was Poetry; He formed it, and that was
    Sculpture; He colored it, and that was Painting; He peopled it
    with living beings, and that was the grand, divine, eternal
    Drama.

Acting is about giving something away, handing yourself over to whatever role you are asked to play. I'm not hiding or escaping or seeking anonymity. I reserve the right not to have a rubber stamp on my forehead saying this is who I am. Because who I am gets in the way of people looking innocently at the parts I play.

But as for all the rest,

The Artist is a rare, rare breed. There were but two, forsooth,
In all me time (the stage's prime!) and The Other One was Booth.
