A Quote by Cyrus the Great on action, benevolence, happiness, power, theater, and world

You cannot be buried in obscurity: you are exposed upon a grand theater to the view of the world. If your actions are upright and benevolent, be assured they will augment your power and happiness.

A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero on action, conscience, desires, good, people, theater, and virtue

Whatever is done without ostentation, and without the people being witnesses of it, is, in my opinion, most praiseworthy: not that the public eye should be entirely avoided, for good actions desire to be placed in the light; but notwithstanding this, the greatest theater for virtue is conscience.

Cicero (106 - 43 BC)

A Quote by Charles S. Milligan on evil, good, guests, life, theater, and time

Now I am not joining in the hue and cry again the dramatist's picturization or against the arts of our time. This theme [evil] often makes very good theater, but what makes good theater does not necessarily make for a good life. I think Macbeth is great, but I am not eager to be the Macbeths' house guest.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on acting, audiences, authors, creation, dreams, managers, and theater

This whole creation is essentially subjective, and the dream is the theater where the dreamer is at once: scene, actor, prompter, stage manager, author, audience, and critic.

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
