Acting On Inspiration
by Ron Tatar
Good words are something actors love. I have always liked finding quotes, thoughts and sayings and sharing them with people I thought might enjoy them. Each month I will share some words that have inspired me, given me understanding and helped me keep things in perspective when times were rocky.
"When the consciousness we know as life ceases, I know that I shall still be part and parcel of the world. I was a part before the sun rolled into shape and burst forth in the glory of change. I was, when the Earth was hurled out from its fiery rim. I shall return to the Earth to Father Sun, and still exist in substance when the sun has lost its fire, and disintegrated in infinity to perhaps become a part of the whirling rubble in space. Why fear? The stuff of my being is matter, ever changing, ever moving, but never lost...."
--- Zora Neale Hurston
"Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind."
--- Henry James
"Someday after we have mastered the winds and the tides and the waves and the gravity we will harness for God the energies of love: And then for the second time in the history of the world men will have discovered fire."
--- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
