But in that process we discover our most authentic selves.” ~ Norman Buckley

Without knowing it, I was trying to peel back the layers that shroud and bind us all as we struggle to reveal our own authentic selves.” ~ Joyce Tenneson

  65. “We all perform our lives in a way. And the actor is a perfect metaphor to get at that theme of “how do we find our authentic selves?” And that we all – whether we’re actors or not – perform ourselves. As a way of searching.
