There is a certain immortality involved in theater, not created by monuments and books, but through the knowledge the actor keeps to his dying day that on a certain afternoon, in an empty and dusty theater, he cast a shadow of a being that was not himself but the distillation of all he had ever observed; all the un-singable heart-song the ordinary man may feel but never utter, he gave voice to. And by that he somehow joins the ages.
