Famous quotes containing the word bernhardt:

    You must have this charm to reach the pinnacle. It is made of everything and of nothing, the striving will, the look, the walk, the proportions of the body, the sound of the voice, the ease of the gestures. It is not at all necessary to be handsome or to be pretty; all that is needful is charm.
    —Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)

    Although all new ideas are born in France, they are not readily adopted there. It seems that they must first commence to prosper in a foreign country.
    —Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)

    Once the curtain is raised, the actor ceases to belong to himself. He belongs to his character, to his author, to his public. He must do the impossible to identify himself with the first, not to betray the second, and not to disappoint the third.
    —Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)
