It is a myth that anyone can be made into a successful actor through training. By successful I mean able to work and make a living. I do not mean fame or ability. Success in the ability to regularly work and work well is so capricious, but the study of the world in which we live will make us successful people, friends, citizens. We can and should enrich ourselves all the time. It–the inspiration–is all out there, ready for us to take and husband and pass on to others.
