Marian Seldes Quote: "You are the only person who can destroy your talent." from "Bright Lights" by Marian Seldes
"After a class, she [Martha Graham] sent for me. I went to the tiny dressing room she used to change into her stylish street clothes.
'Sit down, Marian. I have something to say to you.' She took my hand. I thought of all the things I had done awkwardly in class. I hated myself for misusing the precious hour. Before I could apologize, she said,
'You are the only person who can destroy your talent.'
And she sent me away."
