Famous quotes containing the words act as and/or act:

    Old age equalizes—we are aware that what is happening to us has happened to untold numbers from the beginning of time. When we are young we act as if we were the first young people in the world.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    My dream thou brok’st not, but continued’st it.
    Thou art so true that thoughts of thee suffice
    To make dreams truths and fables histories;
    Enter these arms, for since thou thought’st it best
    Not to dream all my dream, let’s act the rest.
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    I have witnessed, and greatly enjoyed, the first act of everything which Wagner created, but the effect on me has always been so powerful that one act was quite sufficient; whenever I have witnessed two acts I have gone away physically exhausted; and whenever I have ventured an entire opera the result has been the next thing to suicide.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
