    "Abandoned to the whims of others, we must wander daily through the wish to be loved and the fear of rejection before we can be productive. Categorized 'good' or 'bad' from birth ... we become so enmeshed with the tenuous threads of approval / disapproval that we are creatively paralyzed. ... Having thus to look to others to tell us where we are, who we are, and what is happening results in a serious (almost total) loss of personal experiencing."

    "Approval / disapproval grows out of authoritarianism that has changed its face over the years from that of the parent to the teacher and ultimately the whole social structure (mate, employer, family, neighbors, etc.). The language and attitudes of authoriarianism must be constantly scourged if the total personality is to emerge as a working unit."

    -Viola Spolin, Improvisation for the Theatre
