Lupita Amondi  quotes

7. As human beings, we aren’t as individual as we’d like to believe we are. And I think that’s what makes acting possible.

8. It’s so funny, you go to acting school thinking you’re going to learn how to be other people, but really it taught me how to be myself. Because it’s in understanding yourself deeply that you can lend yourself to another person’s circumstances and another person’s experience.

9. “What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion: for yourself and for those around you.”
