Andrea Zuvich Quotes

"I have lived recklessly, gambled my income away at the horse races, gone whoring, have been more drunk than sober, beaten men to a pulp with my hands, have had a mans nose cut off for insulting my father and have been indebted to villains more times than I care to say. But, I do not want to live like this anymore. I want a quiet life with a good woman who will care and love me – not for being the Duke of Monmouth, but for me, Jemmy."

Quotes About Theatre Family

"The theatre is a tragic place, full of endings and partings and heartbreak. You dedicate yourself passionately to something, to a project, to people, to a family, you think of nothing else for weeks and months, then suddenly its over, its perpetual destruction, perpetual divorce, perpetual adieu. Its like éternel retour, its a koan. Its like falling in love and being smashed over and over again.You do, then fall in love.Only with fictions, I love players, but actors are so ephemeral. And then theres waiting for the perfect part, and being offered it the day after youve committed yourself to something utterly rotten. The remorse, and the envy and the jealousy. An old actor told me if I wanted to stay in the trade I had better kill off envy and jealousy at the start." - Author: Iris Murdoch

Quotes About Elementary Memories

"We ran into lots of old friends. Friends from elementary school, junior high school, high school.

We smiled and waved, exchanged a few words, and then walked on in our separate directions." - Author: Banana Yoshimoto
