A Quote by William Shakespeare on stage, time, and roles

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts.

A Quote by Ian on stage


Well, do you ever get the feeling that the story's too damn real and in the present tense?  Or that everybody's on the stage, and it seems like you're the only person sitting in the audience?

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on curiosity, internal self, external self, self, and stage

There were always in me, two women at least, one woman desperate and bewildered, who felt she was drowning and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal her true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest.

Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)

A Quote by Barry Lopez on answers, awareness, compassion, life, light, paradox, questions, self, and stage

How is one to live a moral and compassionate existence when one is fully aware of the blood, the horror inherent in life, when one finds darkness not only in one's culture but within oneself?  If there is a stage at which an individual life becomes truly adult, it must be when one grasps the irony in its unfolding and accepts responsibility for a life lived in the midst of such paradox.  One must live in the middle of contradiction, because if all contradiction were eliminated at once life would collapse.  There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions.  You continue to live them out, making your life a worthy expression of leaning into the light.
