Marian Seldes: Improve The Planet

THREE SISTERS, from left: Kate Reid, Marian Seldes, Maria Tucci, Stratford Shakespeare Festival,

Kate Reid, Marian Seldes, and Maria Tucci in THE THREE SISTERS at Stratford, Connecticut, in 1969, and directed by Michael Kahn.

I have never been to the forests in Brazil. I doubt now that the opportunity will arise where I might go, but I know that they are there, and I know that we need to save and protect them. I do what I can, from this distance. I feel the same about mountains of ice melting high at the top of our planet: I haven’t been there, and I don’t need to go there to realize that we have a responsibility to protect them and to improve the world. This is how I feel about anger or envy or  greed. I know they are out there, but I don’t need to go there. I don’t really want to go there. But from my distance I do what I can to improve things: I do what I can to improve the planet.

From a conversation in 2005
