Zitat des Tages von Lucille Ball:
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work - and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.
I'm happy that I have brought laughter because I have been shown by many the value of it in so many lives, in so many ways.
A man who correctly guesses a woman's age may be smart, but he's not very bright.
One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.
I'm sometimes scared of everything that has happened to us. We didn't think Desilu Productions would grow so big. We merely wanted to be together and have two children.
I regret the passing of the studio system. I was very appreciative of it because I had no talent.
I wanted to get out of the pictures and stay home so that I could have children.
I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
TV started for me just as a means of keeping my husband Desi off the road. He'd been on tour with his band since he got out of the Army, and we were in our 11th year of marriage and wanted to have children.
I dyed my hair this crazy red to bid for attention. It has become a trademark, and I've got to keep it this way.
I'm not funny. What I am is brave.
Use a make-up table with everything close at hand and don't rush; otherwise you'll look like a patchwork quilt.
It's a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.
If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do.
In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.
I am a real ham. I love an audience. I work better with an audience. I am dead, in fact, without one.
The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
Women's Lib? Oh, I'm afraid it doesn't interest me one bit. I've been so liberated it hurts.
I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.
Ability is of little account without opportunity.
The more things you do, the more you can do.
I'm not sure that I want to be without some lack of confidence. If you are too sure of yourself, you don't grow. You may feel confident in some things, but other fields come up as a challenge. And if you don't anticipate trouble, you will be in trouble.
How I Love Lucy was born? We decided that instead of divorce lawyers profiting from our mistakes, we'd profit from them.
