Steven Spielberg:Image result for steven spielberg quotes

                       “I don’t dream at night, I dream all day; I dream for a living.”

                                                                             -Steven Spielberg

Jack: In this quote, Steven Spielberg shows that he loves his job and it is like a dream to him. I like this quote because all jobs should be treated as dreams, enjoy them. this quote applies to theatre because performing on stage is like a dream.

                 “Whether in success or failure, I’m proud of every single movie I’ve directed.”

                                                                                                       -Steven Spielberg

Jack: I think that this quote is saying that not everything you do will be a hit, but you should be proud of it. I like this quote because it shows that even famous directors make mistakes but they are still proud of them. This quote applies to theatre because not every performance will be a hit, but you should be happy with them anyway

Shakespeare:Image result for shakespeare

                            “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so”.

                                                                                                       -Shakespeare

Jack: I think that in this quote, Shakespeare is saying that things are only bad if you think they are bad. I like this quote because it tells me that when something happens, you choose how you think of it. this applies to theatre because when you try something or forget your lines, you could think it’s bad, or you could make up something that will be great.

   “Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have                                                                         greatness thrust upon them”.                       

                                                                                                                      -Shakespeare

Jack: I believe that this quote is saying that you shouldn’t fear greatness, you should embrace it. Some people cannot control whether they are great or not. I like this quote because not everyone wants to be great, but you can’t control it, so just go with it. This quote applies to theatre because people might like your part more than the lead role. you would be more famous and great than that actor.

    ARTISTIC STATEMENT

Jack: I believe that art is important to everyday life because it lets people express imagination. Without imagination, nothing would be invented we would be nowhere near where we are today without creativity. There are no mistakes when you are enjoying yourself.

  1. I feel you chose a great combination for this project. I like how you tie every quote back to theatre as a reference. Also, I personally agree with your artistic statement: we do need imagination.
