Marian Seldes: Life Is Ours

marianseldesthingsbad

We do not live unless we respond to life, and if we see or hear of something glorious, we must then re-create it for someone else; if there is pain or horror, we must heal that breach and do something to alter the balance. Life is ours–it is not something that is happening somewhere else, controlled by someone else. It is ours. Right now.

From a conversation in 2001
