Laurence Olivier, Sir (May 22, 1907 - July 11, 1989)
The actor should be able to create the universe in the palm of his hand.
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.
Those who are more adapted to the active life can prepare themselves for contemplation in the practice of the active life, while those who are more adapted to the contemplative life can take upon themselves the works of the active life so as to become yet
St. Thomas Aquinas
We all work really closely together.
We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started... and know the place for the first time.
