I'm reading The Art of Acting on Amazon on a different monitor while on my James Taylor page on my blog 2Rivers. "I'll let you in on a big secret," writes the great drama coach Stella Adler. "No actor is a success unless he feels inside himself, as long as he lives, that he is good. If you don't feel that you're good, no money can give it to you! No applause can give it to you! No symbol of success can give it to you! That feeling, of an artist or an actress, that confifence must come from him in spite of everything."

"You will quickly see that to achieve your true dimension you have to stretch, you have to expand," says Adler. "To speak on stage you can't use your everyday speech. It doesn't work. The stretch is a great privilege. Only the artist is responsible for stretching. It's entirely up to you. And it's isn't easy. But when the artist does stretch, the entire world limbers up."
