Quote, Unquote : Uncle Monty

“It’s true, I crept the boards in my youth. But I never really had it in my blood, and that’s what’s so essential, isn’t it, theatrical zeal in the veins. Alas I have little more than vintage wine and memories. It is the most shattering experience of a young man’s life when one morning he awakes and quite reasonably says to himself ‘I will never play the Dane.’ When that moment comes, one’s ambition ceases.”
