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

On resentment at his forced retirement from the stage after he was fired by Britain's National Theater, My stage successes have provided me with the greatest moments outside myself, my film successes the best moments, professionally, within myself.

Laurence Olivier (1907 - 1989)
