Ron Davies
Whenever an actress marries a nonprofessional with the promise she can carry on her career, either the marriage ends or the career does. Only actors understand the demands of professional lives and make allowance for them.

Cynthia P. Schneider
Made with Pencils is grounded in the creativity of a few, propelled by the financial support of many, and most importantly, it’s empowering generations to come. A simple idea, a heartfelt desire, and a world of possibility. A pencil, a promise, and a dream.
The slaveholders are terrible for promising to give you this or that, or such and such a privilege, if you will do thus and so, and when the time of fulfillment comes, and one claims the promise, they, forsooth, recollect nothing of the kind; and you are, like as not, taunted with being a liar.
