The Actress Maggie Smith, when she worked at the Stratford Festival, said 1/3 of the audience is going to love you, 1/3 of them will hate you and a 1/3 don’t care. So don’t do what you do for others. Act because you love to act. Speak because you love to speak, dance, teach, whatever you do. Do it for yourself and the feeling it creates inside you.
