Compact Quotations

Whether you are a writer or an actor or a stage manager, you are trying to express the complications of life through a shared enterprise. That's what theatre was, always. And live performance shares that with an audience in a specific compact: the play is unfinished unless it has an audience, and they are as important as everyone else.
Lee Hall

The lunatic, the lover, and the poet, are of imagination all compact.
William Shakespeare

Words are beautiful but restricted. They're very masculine, with a compact frame. But voice is over the dark, the place where there's nothing to hang on: it comes from a part of yourself that simply knows, expresses itself, and is.
Jeff Buckley

Wilfrid Laurier

Justice... is a kind of compact not to harm or be harmed.
