The inability to listen and to depict in the countenance what others have said has spoiled many a good actress.— Julia Marlowe
The most spectacular Julia Marlowe quotes that will inspire your inner self
... unless the actor is able to discourse most eloquently without opening his lips, he lacks the prime essential of a finished artist.
Art is beauty, and every exposition of art, whether it be music, painting, or the drama, should be subservient to that one great end. As long as nature is a means to the attainment of beauty, so-called realism is necessary and permissable [sic], but it must be realism enhanced by idealism and uplifted by the spirit of an inner life or purpose.
Realism to be effective must be a matter of selection.
genius chooses its materials with a view to their beauty and effectiveness; mere talent copies what it thinks is nature, only to find it has been deceived by the external grossness of things.
