Marian Seldes: Judgment Day

marianseldesinclass

Marian Seldes in class at Juilliard, in 1981.

People keep waiting for God, or for Jesus to return. The big day always coming, the day for which we must always be prepared. But I think God–or joy, or peace, or happiness, or fulfillment–comes every single day, every single hour. I find it in kindness; I find it when I huddle with students and witness them growing–in talent, in kindness. We are the judgment day, the coming, the reward.

From a conversation in 1987
