Lee Strasberg

But work has to be done on his acting instrument, which is composed of his mind, his emotions and his body. And this work has to be done separately, not just by understanding a part …Otherwise the actor often fools himself. He understands the play, and he assumes that he is doing on the stage everything that he understands, when obviously he is not. That is the technical problem in any art; that an individual's understanding does not coincide with his capacity. The understanding reaches out, but the capacity makes for what he really does. That capacity is established by the technical training to which we have dedicated ourselves."
