But one of the things I learned from improvising is that all of life is an improvisation, whether you like it or not. Some of the greatest scientific discoveries of the 20th century came out of people dropping things.More Alan Arkin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I used to watch the world as if it was a performance and I would realize that certain things that people did moved me, and certain things didn't move me, and I tried to analyze, even at that age, six and seven and eight, why I was moved by certain things they did.More Alan Arkin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Improvisation sometimes seemed more like jazz than acting, like verbal jazz, with the actors playing a theme back and forth, and then introducing another theme, incorporating it, somehow trying to work their way all together to a meaning of some kind, or at least a conclusion.More Alan Arkin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I had a hard time treating my field as if it's horse racing, putting actors in competition against each other. I see how the industry and the studios feel it's important, but I don't really have a feeling for being in competition. I want to feel sympathetic and close to others, not opposed to them.More Alan Arkin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I gotta keep busy. I'm not happy unless I'm working on two, three things.More Alan Arkin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
