"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are" - Theodore Roosevelt
"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are" - Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)
Theodore was a member of the great long-running improv troupe, The Presidents. And this quote really gets to one of the biggest lesson beginners have to learn... you don't need more stuff. Most scenes already have so much information you can use that whatever is wrong with the scene isn't a lack of emotion or that you are in the wrong place, it's usually that there isn't enough emotion or relationship.
