Meryl Streep Quote: “Most of the great practitioners of the art of acting know exactly what they’re doing; even in the best, most successful moments, when they let go of the awareness of what they are doing, they still, somewhere deep inside their body, know what they’re doing. There is a craft.”
Meryl Streep Quote: “Women are better at acting then men. Why? Because we have to be. If successfully convincing someone bigger than you are of something he doesn’t want to know is a survival skill, this is how women have survived through the millennia.”

Meryl Streep Quote: “They filled our lives so much, the films they were in made us laugh, think and cry. Through their work they shared a piece of our soul. We will miss them with the sadness with which we miss an old friend.”
Meryl Streep Quote: “Acting is being susceptible to what is around you, and it’s letting it all come in. Acting is a clearing away of everything except what you want and need – and it’s wonderful in that way. And when it’s right, you’re lost in the moment.”
Meryl Streep Quote: “I don’t have a favorite director just like I don’t have a favorite color or I don’t have a favorite food. I like everything.”
Meryl Streep Quote: “I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me.”
Meryl Streep Quote: “I do honestly think that if women were running the world there would be more investment in peace, because basically as women we do not want to see our children killed. Maybe I am completely idealistic, but until we see women in equal positions of power in the world, I just think that we are doomed.”
Meryl Streep Quote: “I like who I am now. Other people may not. I’m comfortable. I feel freer now. I don’t want growing older to matter to me.”
Meryl Streep Quote: “I have a very busy life, and not many people who have a career and four kids go out a lot to the movies.”

Meryl Streep Quote: “So it’s not a thing that’s a struggle. It’s work, but it’s not a struggle. It’s fun. And she had a very particular way of emphasizing points and making her point, and that had to do with bringing out a word that you didn’t normally think was the most important word in the sentence.”
