Some suggestions for you :

I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood. If it does need additional interpretation by someone other than the creator, then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose.

My lips never know my problem they just always smile.

I had no idea of the character. But the moment I was dressed, the clothes and the make-up made me feel the person he was. I began to know him, and by the time I walked onto the stage he was fully born.

Perfect love is the most beautiful of all frustrations because it is more than one can express.

We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity; more than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

This is a ruthless world and one must be ruthless to cope with it.

That's the trouble with the world. We all despise ourselves.

I suppose that's one of the ironies of life doing the wrong thing at the right moment.

We might as well die as to go on living like this.

Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain.

The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury.

Smile, though your heart is aching. Smile, even though it's breaking. When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by if you smile through your pain and sorrow. Smile and maybe tomorrow, you'll see the sun come shining through for you.

I am not a political man and I have no political convictions. I am an individual and a believer in liberty. That is all the politics I have.

It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.
