"I became a good dreamer, while I never became an outstanding actor."

CHAPTER EIGHT / I become an actor. (...)

In performing a role I liked to imagine myself inserting a surreptitious footnote to the audience. When I was supposed to play a good-hearted lover, I tried to insert a promise of cruelty in my embrace. When I played the villain, I hinted at tenderness. When I crawled, I imagined I was flying. When I danced, I was a cripple.

in, "The Benefactor" (Susan Sontag)
