Drama Quotes

Drama is like life with the dull bits cut out.

Alfred Hitchcock

Drama is theater, life, an escape from life, happiness, and sadness all rolled into one.

Rebekah Adams

The drama of life begins with a wail and ends with a sigh.

Mina Thomas Antrim

The real object of the drama is the exhibition of the human character.

Thomas Babington Macaulay

The drama embraces and applies all the beauties and decorations of poetry. The sister arts attend and adorn it. Painting, architecture, and music are her handmaids. The costliest lights of a people's intellect burn at her show. All ages welcome her.

Robert Aris Willmott

The drama is the book of the people.

Robert Aris Willmott

It's hard enough to write a good drama, it's much harder to write a good comedy, and it's hardest of all to write a drama with comedy. Which is what life is.

Jack Lemon

Life is like an overlong drama through which we sit being nagged by the vague memories of having read the reviews.

John Updike

The drama may be called that part of theatrical art which lends itself most readily to intellectual discussion: what is left is theater.

Robertson Davies

A passion for the dramatic art is inherent in the nature of man.

Edwin Forrest

I made mistakes in drama. I thought drama was when actors cried. But drama is when the audience cries.

Frank Capra

Drama is something people go through everyday. Change of character is nothing more than mood swings.

Kewana Bagby

A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.

Bill Watterson

Drama is every aspect of life.

Danielle Body

Acted drama requires surrender of one's self, sympathetic absorption in the play as it develops.

George P Baker

To see your drama clearly is to be liberated from it.

Ken Keyes

The drama is the looking-glass in which we see the hideousness of vice and the beauties of virtue.

Frances Anne

Let us never, never forget that we are the masters of our destiny. No one in all the universes writes our script. We do that, in co-creation with our brothers. As we rewrite our script, our brother must do likewise or leave the stage of our drama.

Peter Erbe

The only thing as bad as bad comedy is bad action. Bad Boys II has plenty of both. In fact, those two things are all it has, unless you count the small helping of bad drama. When it comes to this movie, the word "bad" initially seems highly appropriate. But Bad Boys II isn't just bad it's a catastrophic violation of every aspect of cinema that I as a film critic hold dear. It seems to have been constructed with terms like "unwatchable" and "godawful" as its slogans. There are motion picture failures every year the resumes of Hollywood players are littered with them. But, when something this big a would-be blockbuster with recognizable names in the cast and crew collapses in such a spectacular fashion, it's worth taking note. Think of how many starving children could have been fed with the money that was poured into [director] Michael Bay's latest sinkhole.

James Berardinelli

Jean-Eugne Robert-Houdin, the extraordinary father of modern conjuring, made the salient point that a magician is an actor playing the part of a magician. This is a very good description. However, an actor takes for granted how to create drama in every word, movement and look. The average magician is barely aware of its existence.

Derren Victor Brown

A great biography should, like the close of a great drama, leave behind it a feeling of serenity. We collect into a small bunch the flowers, the few flowers, which brought sweetness into a life, and present it as an offering to an accomplished destiny. It is the dying refrain of a completed song, the final verse of a finished poem.

Andre Maurois

The theater is a communal event, like church. The playwright constructs a mass to be performed for a lot of people. She writes a prayer, which is really just the longings of one heart.

Marsha Norman

It’s the uncertainty of being accepted that creates the drama in our lives.

Elizabeth Eulberg

The magic of drama is infinitely more powerful than the magic of trickery. It is as available to the conjurer as it is to the actor. The only difference is that actors take it for granted, whereas few conjurers are even aware that it exists.
