Famous quotes by eleonora duse:

    ... does it seem to you that it is possible to speak of Art? It would be the same as explaining love!
    Eleonora Duse (1859–1924)

    To help, to continually help and share, that is the sum of all knowledge; that is the meaning of art.
    Eleonora Duse (1859–1924)

    To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air; the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.
    Eleonora Duse (1859–1924)

    The one happiness is to shut one’s door upon a little room, with a table before one, and to create; to create life in that isolation from life.
