Art is large and it enlarges you and me. To a shrunk-up world its vistas are shocking. Art is the burning bush that both shelters and makes visible our profounder longings.

—Jeanette Winterson

The reason I work as an artist is to ask questions.  That is, to say, what is it?  If we know what it is we’re doing, there’s no reason to do it.  The reason to work is to say, what is it?

—Robert Wilson

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

—Margaret Mead

There isn’t another art like acting.  The raw material of it is the human spirit, and that has to be treasured and it has to be nurtured and it has to be valued, and anyone who even has an inkling of it is a gift to humanity.

—Tom Ormeny

A man with a clear head looks at life directly, realizes that everything is problematic, and feels himself lost.  And this is the simple truth, that to be alive is to feel oneself lost.  And he who accepts this has alread begun to find himself, to be on solid ground.

—Ortega y Gasset
