the poet’s advice for the actor

Unless the eye catch fire

The God Will not be seen

Unless the ear catch fire

The God will not be heard

Unless the tongue catch fire

The God will not be named

Unless the heart catch fire

The God will not be loved

Unless the mind catch fire

The God will not be known

– William Blake

Think about that, especially in connection with Stanislavsky’s statement that acting is “the life of the human soul receiving its birth through technique.”
