  Actors are like pet birds. When a pet bird dies, there may be, to those who knew him in his day of song and its ruffling plumage, some poor comfort in the sight of its stuffed body. For others there is only a sense of depression.
            —Max Beerbohm

  Actors are like burglars: they always change their names for business purposes.
