Laurence Olivier, Sir (May 22, 1907 - July 11, 1989)

Laurence Olivier, Sir
What is acting but lying and what is good lying but convincing lying?
Acting is illusion, as much illusion as magic is, and not so much a matter of being real.
Acting is a masochistic form of exhibitionism. It is not quite the occupation of an adult.
I don't know what is better than the work that is given to the actor - to teach the human heart the knowledge of itself.
Fashion is something barbarous, for it produces innovation without reason and imitation without benefit.
(December 16, 1863 - September 26, 1952)
Life is short. Be swift to love! Make haste to be kind!
