actor once said to me, "The puppet won't obey me. It's badly made. I want it
to scratch it's head, but it can't! I want it to pat it's stomach, but it can't!"
I replied, "If you try to make the puppet do something it can't do, nothing
will come of it. Forget about what it can't do, and concentrate on what it can,
then the audience will think it can do everything." Sergei
