Marian Seldes: Giving, Sharing, Needing

marianseldes

It is not selfless at all when I help anyone: It is a gift. You think I give you so much, but you have given me just as much. You required me to be stronger and bigger in those times when you needed me, and I did what I could, and you were there when I needed to see if I mattered or could be of help. And you gave so much to me. So many people give to me. Giving, sharing, needing–these are all gifts.

From a conversation in 1999
