As an actor, hope plays a big part in our lives. We experience daily rejection, and must develop skills to not only accept multiple rejections but to stay hopeful that the next time, or the time after that, or next month, or next year sometime, or whenever it’s supposed to happen, that it will eventually be your time. You will eventually book that role. Work on that project. Get that job. You must know that it will happen.
One of my favorite quotes, and one that fills me with hope, is this:
"What’s meant for you
will never miss you,
And what misses you
was never meant for you."
Read that one again.
"Remember, Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." ...Another favorite. Who can tell me what that quote's from?
