45,587.  Nay, faith, let me not play a woman; I have a beard coming.  William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream I ii 50

 

45,588.  I will roar you as gently as any sucking dove; I will roar you as ’twere any nightingale.  ibid. I ii 85

 

 

4,164.  A stage where every man must play a part,

And mine a sad one.  (World & Stage & Actor & Sad)  William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice I i, Antonio to others

 

 

4,166.  Duke Senior:  Thou seest we are not all alone unhappy.

This wide and universal theatre.

Presents more woeful pageants than the scene

Wherein we play in.

 

Jaques:  All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players:

They have their exits and their entrances;

And one man in his time plays many parts,

His acts being seven ages.  (World & Life's Like That & Actor & Stage & Theatre)  William Shakespeare, As You Like It II vii @135

 

45,677.  The best actors in the world, either for tragedy, comedy, history, pastoral, pastoral-comical, historical-pastoral, tragical-historical, tragical-comical-historical, pastoral, scene individable, or poem unlimited.  (Play & Actor)  ibid.  II ii 424

 

45,624.  Good, my lord, will you see the players well bestowed?  Do you hear, let them be well used; for they are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time: after your death you were better have a bad epitaph than their ill report while you live.  (Actor & Plays)  II ii 545

 

45,679.  He would drown the stage with tears,

And cleave the general ear with horrid speech,

Make mad the guilty, and appal the free,

Confound the ignorant, and amaze, indeed,

The very faculties of eyes and ears.  (Plays & Actor)  ibid.  II ii 596

 

45,625.  Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue; but if you mouth it, as many of your players do, I had as lief the town-crier spoke my lines.  Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus, but use all gently; for in the very torrent, tempest, and, as I may say, the whirlwind of passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness.  (Actor & Plays)  ibid.  III ii 1

 

45,626.  Suit the action to the word, the word to the action, with this special observance, that you o’erstep not the modesty of nature.  (Actor & Plays)  ibid.  III ii 19

 

45,627.  O, there be players that I have seen play, and heard others praise, and that highly, not to speak it profanely, that, neither having the accent of Christians nor the gait of Christian, pagan, nor man, have so strutted and bellowed that I have thought some of nature's journeymen had made men and not made them well, they imitated humanity so abominably.  (Actor & Plays)  ibid.  III ii 32

 

 

45,589.  Like a dull actor now,

I have forgot my part, and I am out,

Even to a full disgrace.  William Shakespeare, Coriolanus V iii 40

 

 

45,590.  As an umperfect actor on the stage,

Who with his fear is put beside his part,

Or some fierce thing replete with too much rage,

Whose strength’s abundance weakens his own heart;

So I, for fear of trust, forget to say

The perfect ceremony of love’s rite.  William Shakespeare, Sonnet 23

 

 

16,969.  I can’t get in a mild discussion without turning it into an argument.  There must be something in my tone of voice, or this arrogant face — something that antagonizes everybody.  Nobody likes me on sight.  I suppose that’s why I’m cast as the heavy.  (Gangstas & Actors)  Humphrey Bogart

 

 

45,495.  Dietrich has sex but no positive gender.  Her masculinity appeals to women and her sexuality to men.  (Films & Actors)  Kenneth Tynan

 

 

45,496.  Garbo still belongs to that moment in cinema when capturing the human face plunged audiences into the deepest ecstasy.  (Films & Actors)  Roland Barthes 

 

 

45,497.  There is no Garbo, there is no Dietrich.  There is only Louise Brooks.  (Films & Actors)  Henri Langlois

 

 

45,445.  The fourth Warner Brother.  (Film & Actor)  Bob Hope of Bette Davis

 

 

29,731.  No actor could’ve done that.  Not even Reagan.  (Nixon & Actor)  Playhouse Presents: Nixon’s the One

 

 

34,783.  Please don’t make me a joke.  End the interview with what I believe.  I don’t mind making jokes, but I don’t want to look like one ... I want to be an artist, an actress with integrity.  (Monroe & Actor)  Marilyn Monroe

 

 

34,784.  Unfortunately, I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars.  All we demanded was our right to twinkle.  (Monroe & Actor)  Marilyn Monroe

 

 

34,785.  An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine.  A money machine.  (Monroe & Actor)  Marilyn Monroe 

 

 

34,786.  That’s the trouble, a sex symbol becomes a thing.  But if I’m going to be a symbol of something, I’d rather it be sex than some of the things we’ve got symbols of ... I just hate to be a thing.  (Monroe & Actor)  Marilyn Monroe

 

 

34,788.  First, I’m trying to prove to myself that I'm a person.  Then maybe I’ll convince myself that I’m an actress.  (Monroe & Actor)  Marilyn Monroe, Ms Magazine 1972

 

 

45,453.  I’m not a film star, I am an actress.  Being a film star is such a false life, lived for fake values and for publicity.  (Films & Actor)  Vivien Leigh

 

 

45,454.  Movies are a fad.  Audiences really want to see live actors on a stage.  (Films & Actor)  Charles Chaplin

 

 

86,498.  Actors search for rejection.  If they don't get it they reject themselves.  (Rejection & Actor)  Charlie Chaplin

 

 

45,455.  Acting is a question of absorbing other people’s personalities and adding some of your own experience.  Jean-Paul Sartre
