From the August 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When Shakespeare declared that "all the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players," he gave out an aphorism the truth of which is obvious chiefly because the self-importance of the average player tends to eclipse the purpose of the play. The true function of the actor is fidelity to the ideals of the artist whose thought he images.
