    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    Bible: New Testament, Ephesians 5:17-20.

    I have no acting technique.... I act instinctively. That’s why I can’t play any role that isn’t based on something in my life.
    Ethel Waters (1900–1977)

    There’s Gert and there’s Ep and there’s Ein.
    Gert’s poems are bunk,
    Ep’s statues are junk,
    And no-one can understand Ein.
