The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.

I’ve come to terms with the fact that if you’re on TV, lots of people like you and lots of people hate you, and once you’re OK with that, you apply it to everything.

"When reading the script, I felt sympathy for her. I wanted to hold her, I wanted to make it all right. But that’s no way to play her. I had to let go of that and recognize that Patsey abused was the norm. She didn’t get time to sentimentalize her abuse. She didn’t get time to wallow in it. She needed to live through it. And it was coming from all directions. It was physical, it was emotional, it was psychological. And she was always trying to get through it. Those were the things that guided me and prepared me to do this role. And recognizing that this was a true story. And I had the privilege of doing this for fake." - Lupita Nyong’o on preparing to play Patsey in 12 Years a Slave

I was a slut. There will always be a part of me that is dirty and sloppy, but I like that, just like all the other parts of myself. I can forgive. Can you say the same for yourself, fucker? Can you forgive? Are you capable of that?

Elaine Stritch, Tart-Tongued Broadway Actress and Singer, Is Dead at 89 | NYT

Plainspoken, egalitarian, impatient with fools and foolishness, and admittedly fond of cigarettes, alcohol and late nights — she finally gave up smoking and drinking in her 60s — though she took it up again — Ms. Stritch might be the only actor to work as a bartender after starring on Broadway, and she was completely unabashed about her good-time-girl attitude.

“I’m not a bit opposed to your mentioning in this article that Frieda Fun here has had a reputation in the theater, for the past five or six years, for drinking,” she said to a reporter for The New York Times in 1968. “I drink and I love to drink, and it’s part of my life.”
