“A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love.” ―Stendhal
A great playwright said that we are all players on the stage of the world. That was before the Globe closed.
“That willing suspension of disbelief for the moment, which constitutes poetic faith.”
―Samuel Taylor Coleridge

“When you’re on stage you have a very strange knowledge of what the audience is. It isn’t exactly a sound – it’s a hum, like the streets.”

“Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business.”
