Famous quotes containing the word play:
“This fellow is wise enough to play the fool,
And to do that well craves a kind of wit.
He must observe their mood on whom he jests,
The quality of persons, and the time,
Not, like the haggard, check at every feather
That comes before his eye. This is a practice
As full of labor as a wise mans art.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Teach a child to play solitaire, and shell be able to entertain herself when theres no one around. Teach her tennis, and shell know what to do when shes on a court. But raise her to feel comfortable in nature, and the whole planet is her home.”
—Joyce Maynard (20th century)
“To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air; the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.”
—Eleonora Duse (18591924)
