You can throw away the privilege of acting, but that would be such a shame. The tribe has elected you to tell its story. You are the shaman/healer, that's what the storyteller is, and I think it's important for actors to appreciate that.

The more you pull away from the public, the less power you have on screen.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

[Fr., Le crime fait la honte et non pas l'echafaud.]More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
He who the sword of heaven will bear
Should be as holy as severe;
Pattern in himself to know,
Grace to stand, and virtue go;

Than by self-offenses weighing.
Shame to him whose cruel striking
Kills for faults of his own liking.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Two emblems--one of fame;
Alas! the other that it bears
Reminds us of your shame.

White freedom with its stars,
But what's the meaning of the stripes?
They mean your negroes' scars.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Will lose his beauty; yet the gold bides still
That others touch, and often touching will
Wear gold; and no man that hath a name,
By falsehood and corruption doth it shame.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive,
Half wishing they were dead to save the shame.
The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow;
They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats,
And flare up bodily, wings and all.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I pity bashful men, who feel the pain
Of fancied scorn and undeserved disdain,
And bear the marks upon a blushing face,
OF needless shame, and self-impos'd disgrace.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

the heart.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Thou dost shame
That bloody spoil. Thou slave, thou wretch, thou coward!

But when her humorous ladyship is by
To teach thee safety!More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

If you did wed my sister for her wealth,
Then for her wealth's sake use her with more kindness:
Or if you like elsewhere, do it by stealth;
Muffle your false love with some show of blindness:
Let not my sister read it in your eye;
Be not thy tongue thy own shame's orator;
Look sweet, spear fair, become disloyalty;
Apparel vice like virtue's harbinger;
Bear a fair presence, though your heart be tainted;
More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Italia! O Italia! thou who hast
The fatal gift of beauty, which became
A funeral dower of present woes and past,
On thy sweet brow is sorrow plough'd by shame,
And annals graved in characters of flame.
[It., Italia, Italia, O tu cui feo la sorte,
Dono infelice di bellezza, ond' hai
Funesta dote d'infiniti guai
Che in fronte scritti per gran doglia porte.]More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
