Marian Seldes: There Can Be No Cruelty

Marian as a student at The Neighborhood Playhouse/1945

Interview with Marian Seldes
Conducted by James Grissom

I have lived for a long time, and I have seen so many things and met so many people, and I have yet to see where cruelty is justified. There is simply no place for it, and I find it unforgivable. Honesty can heal and clarify and elevate, and we all must learn how to share it without pain, and there can not be a trace of cruelty in it. No one on the planet is alien to you, or should be. Everyone is a mirror of you, their lives a lesson. There can be no cruelty.
