The split second she ceases to care is the only time a woman ceases to be attractive.

Glamour is something you can't bear to be without once you're used to it.

I can't imagine dating a boy, meeting him only outside the home. What's a home and family for if it's not the center of one's life?

In silence - and in self-defense - I figured things out in my own little way.

I was as impatient about finding my dream man as I was about everything else I wanted.

Giving credit where credit is due is a very rewarding habit to form. Its rewards are inestimable.

I've learned that getting what you want gives you a pretty high batting average, and leaves you plenty to struggle for.

I don't yearn to be a child again.

Just after I entered my teens I suddenly entertained an insatiable enthusiasm for the delightful habit of criticizing others.

I was a very wanting child.

There are no ugly ducklings.

No one is ever too old, too rich, too poor, to pray.

Success can't be forced.

I believe that prayer is our powerful contact with the greatest force in the universe.

I do not hold with those who think it is all right to do whatever you want so long as it doesn't hurt anyone. Who's to be the judge of that?

As an actress, I have to be objective about myself. If I don't criticize myself, there are plenty who will do a find job of it for me!

I think making mistakes is as inevitable as receiving disappointments.

I'm not sure the public knows what it wants.

Of course it was Mamma who both stopped my career and crystallized my determination to resume it.

I believe in the Golden Rule. I believe in practicing it.

I'm grateful to God for His bountiful gifts... He gave me courage and faith in myself.

There is no personal achievement in being born beautiful.

As an actress, emotions are my business, my stock-in-trade. As such, I've dealt with them nearly all my life.

I couldn't bear it if anyone knew I had hardly any self-confidence at all.

Unless some misfortune has made it impossible, everyone can have good posture.

Love isn't something you find. Love is something that finds you.

A face is like the outside of a house, and most faces, like most houses, give us an idea of what we can expect to find inside.

Certainly tears are given to us to use. Like all good gifts, they should be used properly.

A charming woman... doesn't follow the crowd. She is herself.

In my dreams, I could be a Princess, and that's what I was. Like most little girls, I believed nothing less than a Prince could make my dreams come true.

In 1949 there was a new thing called Television, to which my agency and advisers opposed as a performance medium.

I learned you have to fight for yourself in the picture business.

I believe in living today. Not in yesterday, nor in tomorrow.

I've always been scared to death of pain - afraid, even, to think of it.

Wearing the correct dress for any occasion is a matter of good manners.

Just because you want to be glamorous, don't be a sheep about your eye makeup.

I'd lived by quotations, practically all my life.

In common with many others in the varied branches of our profession, my academic education is subnormal.

Like charity, I believe glamour should begin at home.

Fashion should not be expected to serve in the stead of courage or character.

I believe you have to nurture your conscience.

A pleasant voice, which has to include clear enunciation, is not only attractive to those who hear it... its appeal is permanent.

If you want a place in the sun, you have to expect a few blisters.

I'd thought of myself as a great big motion picture star from the time I was 6.

It's so important to look relaxed.

Your hands, your eyes, your voice, your thoughts are your servants.

I was deaf and dumb and blind to all but me, myself and I.

A charming woman is a busy woman.

Gratitude isn't a burdening emotion.
