Famous quotes containing the words performing arts, arts, performing, san and/or foundation:

    More than in any other performing arts the lack of respect for acting seems to spring from the fact that every layman considers himself a valid critic.
    Uta Hagen (b. 1919)

    But here comes Generosity; giving—not to a decayed artist—but to the arts and sciences themselves.—See,—he builds ... whole schools and colleges for those who come after. Lord! how they will magnify his name!
    —One honest tear shed in private over the unfortunate, is worth them all.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    Bottom. What is Pyramus? A lover or a tyrant?
    Quince. A lover that kills himself, most gallant, for love.
    Bottom. That will ask some tears in the true performing of it. If I do it, let the audience look to their eyes.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    We had won. Pimps got out of their polished cars and walked the streets of San Francisco only a little uneasy at the unusual exercise. Gamblers, ignoring their sensitive fingers, shook hands with shoeshine boys.... Beauticians spoke to the shipyard workers, who in turn spoke to the easy ladies.... I thought if war did not include killing, I’d like to see one every year. Something like a festival.
    Maya Angelou (b. 1928)

    To apologize is to lay the foundation for a future offense.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)
