There are some who want to get married and others who don't. I have never had an impulse to go to the altar. I am a difficult person to lead.

Life would be so wonderful if we only knew what to do with it.

I'm tired and nervous and I'm in America. Here you don't know that you live.

The story of my life is about back entrances, side doors, secret elevators and other ways of getting in and out of places so that people won't bother me.

This is where I have wasted the best years of my life.

If only those who dream about Hollywood knew how difficult it all is.

Being a movie star, and this applies to all of them, means being looked at from every possible direction. You are never left at peace, you're just fair game.

My talents fall within definite limitations. I am not as versatile an actress as some think.

I wish I were supernaturally strong so I could put right everything that is wrong.

I want to be alone.

There seems to be a law that governs all our actions so I never make plans.

It is bitter to think of one's best years disappearing in this unpolished country.

You don't have to be married to have a good friend as your partner for life.

Anyone who has a continuous smile on his face conceals a toughness that is almost frightening.

I don't want to be a silly temptress. I cannot see any sense in getting dressed up and doing nothing but tempting men in pictures.

There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person. They are you, your private joys and sorrows, and you can never tell them. You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them.

I never said, 'I want to be alone.' I only said, 'I want to be left alone.' There is all the difference.

If you are blessed, you are blessed, whether you are married or single.

Is there anything better than to be longing for something, when you know it is within reach?

There is no one who would have me - I can't cook.

Your joys and sorrows. You can never tell them. You cheapen the inside of yourself if you do tell them.

I smoke all the time, one after the other.
