Quotes About Acting

"[E]ducation is a thing you get past and forget about as quickly as possible. This is particularly true of elementary and secondary education, of course…. I began to remember what it had been like: the tremendous excitement of the first couple of years, when kids imagine that great secrets are going to be unfolding before them, then the disappointment that gradually sets in when you begin to realize the truth: Theres plenty of learning to do, but its not the learning you wanted. Its learning to keep your mouth shut, learning how to avoid attracting the teachers attention when you dont want it, learning not to ask questions, learning how to pretend to understand, learning how to tell teachers what they want to hear, learning to keep your own ideas and opinions to yourself, learning how to look as if youre paying attention, learning how to endure the endless boredom." - Author: Daniel Quinn

Quotes About Famous Bedrooms

"The second death. To think that you died and no one would remember you. I wondered if this was why we tried so hard to make our mark in America. To be known.
