Acting is the least mysterious of all crafts. Whenever we want something from somebody or when we want to hide something or pretend, we're acting. Most people do it all day long.

Acting is the expression of a neurotic impulse. It's a bum's life. Quitting acting, that's the sign of maturity.
MARLON BRANDO, attributed, Halliwell's Filmgoer's and Video Viewer's Companion
An actor's a guy, who if you ain't talking about him, ain't listening.
