I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together
If I'd observed all the rules I'd never have got anywhere.
I don't mind living in a man's world, as long as I can be a woman in it.
It's not true that I had nothing on. I had the radio on.
She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that's important-you know
It's far better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone - so far.
If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything.
I learned to walk as a baby and I haven't had a lesson since.
I've been on a calendar, but never on time.
I'm not interested in money, I just want to be wonderful.
Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.
Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature.
A girl doesn't need anyone who doesn't need her
A sex symbol becomes a thing. I hate being a thing.
Your clothes should be tight enough to show you're a woman but loose enough to show you're a lady
How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.
Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
I was honoured when they asked me to appear at the president's birthday rally in Madison Square Garden. There was like a hush over the whole place when I came on to sing 'Happy Birthday,' like if I had been wearing a slip, I would have thought it was showing or something. I thought, 'Oh, my gosh, what if no sound comes out!'
My dinners at home are startlingly simple. Every night, I stop at the market near my hotel and pick up a steak, lamb chops or some liver, which I broil in the electric oven in my room. I usually eat four or five raw carrots with my meat, and that is all. I must be part rabbit; I never get bored with raw carrots.
Sometimes, wearing a scarf and a polo coat and no makeup and with a certain attitude of walking, I go shopping or just look at people living. But then, you know, there will be a few teenagers who are kind of sharp, and they'll say, 'Hey, just a minute. You know who I think that is?' And they'll start tailing me. And I don't mind.
I have never cared especially for outdoor sports and have no desire to excel at tennis, swimming, or golf. I'll leave those things to the men.
When I was five, I think, that's when I started wanting to be an actress. I loved to play. I didn't like the world around me because it was kind of grim, but I loved to play house. It was like you could make your own boundaries.
If I close my eyes and think of Hollywood, all I see is one big varicose vein.
A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows that she has none.
Sometimes good things fall apart so better things could fall together.
Maybe I'll never be able to do what I hope to, but at least I have hope.
When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them.
I am invariably late for appointments - sometimes as much as two hours. I've tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.
A smart girl is one who knows how to play tennis, golf, piano - and dumb.
A girl does not need anyone who does not need her.
Promises are worse than lies. You don't just make them believe, you also make them hope.
Always remember to smile and look up at what you got in life.
I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made.
I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't.
A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left.
The sky is not the limit. Your mind is
I don't forgive people because I'm weak, I forgive them because I am strong enough to know people make mistakes.
To all the girls that think you're fat because you're not a size zero, you're the beautiful one, its society who's ugly.
