A planned life is a dead life.

Being a liberal is the best thing on earth you can be.

Generally women are better than men- they have more character. I prefer men for some things, obviously, but women have a greater sense of honor and are more willing to take a chance with their lives.

I figure if I have my health, can pay the rent and I have my friends, I call it 'content.'

I never believed marriage was a lasting institution... I thought that to be married for five years was to be married forever.

I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.

I wish Frank Sinatra would just shut up and sing.

Imagination is the highest kite that can fly.

In Hollywood, an equitable divorce settlement means each party getting fifty percent of publicity.

It's inappropriate and vulgar and absolutely unacceptable to use your private life to sell anything commercially.

It's not an old movie if you haven't seen it.

Legends are all to do with the past and nothing to do with the present.

Looking at yourself in a mirror isn't exactly a study of life.

Naïveté, thy name is me.

People should tell your children what life is all about- it's about work.

Stardom isn't a profession, it's an accident.

The madmen seem to live on forever, don't they?

We live in an age of mediocrity.

What is the point of working all your life and then stopping?

You can't always be a leading lady.

You can't start worrying about what's going to happen. You get spastic enough worrying about what's happening now.

You don't always win your battles, but it's good to know you fought.
