From Alex Berg:

I heard this quote from Paul Vallaincourt in my 101 class at iO West way back in the summer of 2004, and it really stuck with me:
"A pipe gives a wise man time to think and a fool something to stick in his mouth." - C.S. Lewis
 The point is that there’s ways to play besides verbally. There’s nothing wrong with playing verbally, but if you feel like that’s your only option, you’re going to wind up with a lot of panic fire in those moments where you’re not sure what to do. Slow down, engage your environment with some object work, and either buy yourself time to think or just shut yourself up for a bit.

While putting together the Improv Artvice book, I went back to some favorites like this one to retouch and/or make them a higher resolution.
