    The gift of loneliness is sometimes a radical vision of society or one’s people that has not previously been taken into account.
    —Alice Walker (b. 1944)

    Glorious bouquets and storms of applause ... are the trimmings which every artist naturally enjoys. But to move an audience in such a role, to hear in the applause that unmistakable note which breaks through good theatre manners and comes from the heart, is to feel that you have won through to life itself. Such pleasure does not vanish with the fall of the curtain, but becomes part of one’s own life.
    —Dame Alice Markova (b. 1910)
