- It was an astonishing performance, wrong from beginning to end, but with all the qualities of fine acting rearing their way through a chaos of inexperience. His diction was practically perfect; his personality, in spite of fantastic antics, was real and varied; his sense of passion, of evil, of drunkenness, of tyranny, of a sort demoniac authority, was arresting. A preposterous energy pulsated through everything he did. permalink

- Life is a long rehearsal for a play that is never produced. permalink
- Some people call me a ham - in my day it was called acting. permalink
- We actors are born at the rise of the curtain, and we die with its fall, and every night in the presence of our patrons we write our new creation, and every night it is blotted out forever; and of what use is it to say to audience or to critic, "Ah, but you should have seen me last Tuesday?" permalink
