Marian Seldes: Beauty and Honor

marianseldesblowingkiss

I always find the beauty and the honor in the world because I look for it. I know what’s going on in the world, but I don’t believe that it’s normal or predominant. It’s interesting; it’s salacious. It is not who we are. So I see beauty and honor and humor and kindness all the time, and when I’m faced with something horrible, I know where to go to find these beautiful, honorable people to fix it. We build a life and we build a family, and both are what we seek and what we earn.

From a conversation in 1996
