The words and wisdom of Constantin Stanislavski:

On the stage there cannot be, under any circumstances, action which is directed immediately at the arousing of a feeling for its own sake.  To ignore this rule results only in the most disgusting artificiality.  When you are choosing some bit of action leave feeling and spiritual content alone.  Never seek to be jealous, or to make love, or to suffer, for its own sake.  All such feelings are the result of something that has gone before.  Of the thing that goes before you should think as hard as you can.  As for the result, it will produce itself.
