Young actors, fear your admirers! Learn in time, from your first steps, to hear, understand and love the cruel truth about yourselves. Find out who can tell you that truth and talk of your art only with those who can tell you the truth.
      - Konstantin Stanislavsky

I have seen no men in life loving their profession so much as painters, except, perhaps, actors, who, when not engaged themselves, always go to the play.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

The play is done; the curtain drops,
  Slow falling to the prompter's bell;
    A moment yet the actor stops,
      And looks around, to say farewell.
        It is an irksome work and task;
          And, when he's laughed and said his say,
            He shows, as he removes the mask,
              A face that's anything but gay.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray,
        The End of the Play

In other things the knowing artist may
  Judge better than the people; but a play,
    (Made for delight, and for no other use)
      If you approve it not, has no excuse.
      - Edmund Waller, Maid's Tragedy (prologue)

Acting is just a way of making a living, the family is life.
      - Denzel Washington

Comedians are not actors; they are only imitators of actors.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
