Famous quotes containing the word act:

    You see what happens today. Women act like men and want to be treated like women.
    Alan Jay Lerner (1918–1986)

    To die is not to play a part in society; it is the act of a single person. Let us live and laugh among our friends; let us die and sulk among strangers.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    It is in the very nature of things human that every act that has once made its appearance and has been recorded in the history of mankind stays with mankind as a potentiality long after its actuality has become a thing of the past.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)
