Quote

I make no apologies for quoting Ninon de Lenclos again.

 Her wisdom was pithy and timeless.

 “Actors ought to be larger than life. You come across quite enough ordinary, nondescript people in daily life and I don’t see why you should be subjected to them on the stage too.”

Maybe we could change that quote slightly….

 “Fictional characters ought to be larger than life. You come across quite enough ordinary, nondescript people in daily life and I don’t see why you should be subjected to them in books too.”
