Marian Seldes on Faith


Do I teach acting? Can anyone teach such a thing? I think I encourage faith: faith in the theatre; faith in literature; faith in humanity; faith, primarily, in ourselves. I want so much for people to see in themselves what I see in them, and I want them to understand that none of us has any idea how the world will want or use our gifts. But the world will need them, and we have to have the faith that the best channels for our talents will be good for us. Nothing can be forced, only recognized.
