"Woof!" And you can quote me!
Hello Everybody! Autumn the Puppy here.
Quoting celebrities on various things has become a popular feature whenever I host The Sunday Funnies, so it's time to do it again.
This time, the topic is the thoughts of people who work in the entertainment industry on the entertainment industry and, as usual, my thoughts are in italics afterward. Ready?

Bogie, circa 1945
"I act because I love the craft, because the only point in making money is so you can tell some big shot where to go."
Actor Humphrey Bogart (1899-1957)
Money may not be able to buy you happiness or love, but it can give you a little independence once in a while. Then again, I just can't see anyone ever being able to push Bogie around.

Martin, circa 1963
"I believe entertainment can aspire to be art, and can become art, but if you sell out to make art, you're an idiot.
Entertainer Steve Martin (1945—)
Art who? Just kidding. Seriously, art reflects life, but life inspires art. As long as we're alive, we're creating art every day, even if we're not actually aware of it.

"I don't think I could do my work if I didn't believe there was some kind of hope for humanity."
Entertainer Sandra Bernhard (1955—)
Bikel, circa 1980s
And art does inspire hope, let alone life...

"The play is always fresh to me. It's not the audience's fault that I've said the words before."
Theodore Bikel (1924-2015)
That a performer can bring something new to every production, no matter how many times they've done it before, says something unique about that person.

"Drama is like a plate of meet and potatoes. Comedy is rather the dessert, a bit like meringue."
Woody Allen (1935—)
Then I say life's short. Eat dessert first!

That's all the time and space I have for this weekend.
Have a great week everybody, and please be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—AtP.
