The dramatic artist cannot create without having worked.
He shows to the public his final creation, the result of his work, which ought to be based on intellectuality, solidly founded on knowledge.
Without knowing you cannot be intellectual. There is no real Art without intellectuality. You are more artistic when you combine sensi­bility with your intellectuality. Your sensi­bility will inspire you to beautify your creation.
It is true that the dramatic artist's mission is to present human truth; however, he has not to give mechanically and faithfully an imitation of life. He must in his art only re­flect the human truth.
In presenting the ugly he must show us a ray of beauty, in presenting despair a beam of hope. Show how the cruel assassin goes to the scaf­fold to expiate his crime, but let him in his last second be rehabilitated before God and men.
The dramatic artist shall not be a photog­rapher, but a painter. His art shall have all arts for its servants and his inspiration shall come from nature, color, from harmonious sound, from marble.
