Famous quotes containing the words theater, indian and/or hills:

    I want to give the audience a hint of a scene. No more than that. Give them too much and they won’t contribute anything themselves. Give them just a suggestion and you get them working with you. That’s what gives the theater meaning: when it becomes a social act.
    Orson Welles (1915–1984)

    The principal thing children are taught by hearing these lullabies is respect. They are taught to respect certain things in life and certain people. By giving respect, they hope to gain self-respect and through self-respect, they gain the respect of others. Self-respect is one of the qualities my people stress and try to nurture, and one of the controls an Indian has as he grows up. Once you lose your self-respect, you just go down.
    Henry Old Coyote (20th century)

    Fretted shadow on stumps
    A vanishing husk
    Of light . . . grey lumps
    Of stone verge the hills with fears.
    It is quickly dusk.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
