Zitat des Tages von Katharine Hepburn:
If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.
As for me, prizes are nothing. My prize is my work.
I have many regrets, and I'm sure everyone does. The stupid things you do, you regret... if you have any sense, and if you don't regret them, maybe you're stupid.
Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.
Acting is the most minor of gifts. After all, Shirley Temple could do it when she was four.
Acting is a nice childish profession - pretending you're someone else and, at the same time, selling yourself.
The average Hollywood film star's ambition is to be admired by an American, courted by an Italian, married to an Englishman and have a French boyfriend.
When I started out, I didn't have any desire to be an actress or to learn how to act. I just wanted to be famous.
If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.
Without discipline, there's no life at all.
Dressing up is a bore. At a certain age, you decorate yourself to attract the opposite sex, and at a certain age, I did that. But I'm past that age.
I never lose sight of the fact that just being is fun.
Acting is the perfect idiot's profession.
Only the really plain people know about love - the very fascinating ones try so hard to create an impression that they soon exhaust their talents.
My greatest strength is common sense. I'm really a standard brand - like Campbell's tomato soup or Baker's chocolate.
It's a rather rude gesture, but at least it's clear what you mean.
Life is to be lived. If you have to support yourself, you had bloody well better find some way that is going to be interesting. And you don't do that by sitting around.
Being a housewife and a mother is the biggest job in the world, but if it doesn't interest you, don't do it - I would have made a terrible mother.
To be loved is very demoralizing.
Plain women know more about men than beautiful women do.
Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give - which is everything.
If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.
Enemies are so stimulating.
Trying to be fascinating is an asinine position to be in.
I never realized until lately that women were supposed to be the inferior sex.
It's a business you go into because you're an egocentric. It's a very embarrassing profession.
Death will be a great relief. No more interviews.
Marriage is a series of desperate arguments people feel passionately about.
If you want to give up the admiration of thousands of men for the distain of one, go ahead, get married.
