Famous quotes containing the words theater and/or home:

    Be reflective ... and stay away from the theater as much as you can. Stay out of the theatrical world, out of its petty interests, its inbreeding tendencies, its stifling atmosphere, its corroding influence. Once become “theatricalized,” and you are lost, my friend; you are lost.
    Minnie Maddern Fiske (1865–1932)

    Jen: All the other boys fall over themselves and never even get to first base.
    Cory: Did you ever think, Jen, that I might not want to get to first base?
    Jen: Of course not. You’re out to make a home run.
    Blake Edwards (b. 1922)
