A Quote by Sir Laurence Kerr, Baron Olivier of Brighton on acting, force, resentment, retirement, and theater

On resentment at his forced retirement from the stage after he was fired by Britain's National Theater, I should be soaring away with my head tilted slightly toward the gods, feeding on the caviar of Shakespeare.... An actor must act.

Laurence Olivier (1907 - 1989)
