“You may have been corrupted into thinking that you are important. If so you are a lost creature waiting for the world to come to you. An actress’s whole life can be ruined if she expects life to come to her. Tell yourself that the world is outside, that it’s not to be hidden from you, that you are going to thrust yourself forward and be relaxed in the world. You have chosen a field where you’re going to be hurt to the blood. But to retreat from the pain is death.”
Howard Kissel, The Art of Acting

“The result of this is a disrespect for the world in general and a foreignness to anything around him that isn't immediately recognizable to his everyday habits. He has even begun to lose perspective on what his own assets and faults are, because he has nothing to measure these things against.”
Howard Kissel, Stella Adler - The Art of Acting: preface by Marlon Brando compiled and edited by Howard Kissel

“When it's really fashionable, there's something wrong.
An actor once came up to me and said, "I'm a Meth. . ." and he mumbled something. I said, "Get out of here. I don't want that around. It's too corrupt.”
Howard Kissel, Stella Adler - The Art of Acting: preface by Marlon Brando compiled and edited by Howard Kissel
