How to use acting in a sentence?

  1. Angela Lansbury:

    People say to me,' Well, how can you play Jessica Fletcher and then you come along and play Madame Arcati ?' i say,' It's all about imagination.' That's what acting is, is imagination. If you don't have imagination, you're not going to want to play different roles. I've always wanted to attack roles that didn't appear to be something I'd ever done before.

  2. Patricia Arquette:

    I’m okay with that, but it’s not just about acting, and it’s not about me as an actor. I don’t believe this is fair for anybody. I want to live in the America I believe in, that really is fair, that really has possibilities, and really does treat people of all races and all sexes equally.

  3. Francis Cardinal George, OMI:

    The Church is founded upon God’s self-revelation to his people. This revelation is made in events in which God intervenes in human history, acting to unite people to himself here and for all eternity. People gather around these events and become a community, God’s people.
