“It stands to reason that if we direct all our efforts towards reaching a goal, we stand in grave danger of losing everything on which we have based our daily activities. For when a goal is superimposed on an activity instead of evolving out of it, we often feel cheated when we reach it.”

Viola Spolin, U.S. theatrical producer, director, writer
(1911 - 1994)
