One of our most brilliantly iconoclastic playwrights takes on the art of profession of acting with these words: invent nothing, deny nothing, speak up, stand up, stay out of school. Acting schools, “interpretation,” “sense memory,” “The Method”—David Mamet takes a jackhammer to the idols of contemporary acting, while revealing the true heroism and nobility of the craft. He shows actors how to undertake auditions and rehearsals, deal with agents and directors, engage audiences, and stay faithful to the script, while rejecting the temptations that seduce so many of their colleagues. Bracing in its clarity, exhilarating in its common sense,  True and False  is as shocking as it is practical, as witty as it is instructive, and as irreverent as it is inspiring.

He looks at every aspect of directing—from script to cutting room—to show the many tasks directors undertake in reaching their prime objective: presenting a story that will be understood by the audience and has the power to be both surprising and inevitable at the same time. Based on a series of classes Mamet taught at Columbia University's film school,  On Directing Film  will be indispensible not only to students but to anyone interested in an overview of the craft of filmmaking.

Rabindranath Tagore wrote, "In love all the contradiction of existence merge themselves and are lost. Only in love are unity and duality not at variance. love must be one and two at the same time. Our heart ever changes its place till it finds love and then it has its rest.

But for those rare times when you do need words to express your love, dip into this selection of quotations expressing innumerable dimensions of।ove.
