Marian Seldes: Imagination and Desire

Marian Seldes in Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women, 1994

Our imaginations will save us. Everything is there for us. I try to tell my students that they should be working on their minds, their imaginations all the time. The mental foundation–creative and curious–will sustain them through all things, and I have to keep telling them that opportunities will arise. I believe that things are waiting for us, being created for us, as we build our foundations. And then things happen, so to speak. Imagination is the ultimate desire.

From a conversation in 1991
