“My work averages only about four hours a day. I thoroughly enjoy it. Even the rehearsals are interesting. I consider the Motion Picture business educational and uplifting….My being in the business proves that. I played all over the United States, and for many years in New York, with regular companies, but this suits me better. Think of the millions of people whom the picture-player reaches, compared with the few thousands reached by the regular actor. Then, it is interesting to be able to visit a playhouse and watch my own acting – to see where I fall short, and where I can improve myself. I have played with only one company, the Edison, but have played upwards of a thousand parts….Work interest me most of anything. Work and the joy of living.”Charles M. Seay  (1867-1944) in 1912
