Quote of the Day (Stella Adler, on the Artistic Temperament)

“Happy children should not try to be artists. You have to be born with a broken heart and a sense of loneliness inside. I never had a happy moment as a child myself.”—Stella Adler (1901-1992), teacher of Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Warren Beatty, Candice Bergen, and other famous actors, quoted in Stella Adler on America’s Master Playwrights: Eugene O'Neill, Clifford Odets, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Edward Albee, et al., edited and with commentary by Barry Paris (2012)
