"Sometimes life feels very long. What all I have come through! And other times, it seems as if it has all gone by too fast, and still I haven't learned, and still I haven't done anything. I feel strangely new to the world. What has one been alive long enough to draw some conclusions, to say anything intelligent about it?
. . . .
I have a big realization at that time. Okay, there is the framing the shots and fashioning the sets. There is editing and makeup and lighting and props, and there is even writing. But the greatest challenge always lies in how one handles the actors."
