Acting
Acting is an activity in which a story is told by means of its enactment by an actor or actress who adopts a character—in theatre, television, film, radio, or any other medium that makes use of the mimetic mode.
Acting
Farce follow'd Comedy, and reach'd her prime,
In ever-laughing Foote's fantastic time;
Mad wag! who pardon'd none, nor spared the best,
And turn'd some very serious things to jest.
Nor church nor state escaped his public sneers,
Arms nor the gown, priests, lawyers, volunteers;
"Alas, poor Yorick!" now forever mute!
Whoever loves a laugh must sigh for Foote.
We smile, perforce, when histrionic scenes
Ape the swoln dialogue of kings and queens,
When "Chrononhotonthologos must die,"
And Arthur struts in mimic majesty.
Lord Byron, Hints from Horace, line 329.
Acting
It's not whether you really cry. It's whether the audience thinks you are crying.
Ingrid Bergman, Halliwell's Filmgoer's and Video Viewer's Companion.
Acting
Acting is therefore the lowest of the arts, if it is an art at all.
George Moore, Mummer-Worship.
