You keep all the young children and let their father have the ones that are over eighteen or twenty. Although Goethe, the famous German poet, said, ‘A pretty foot is a great gift of nature,’ you don’t run into men like Goethe every day.” “One of the best places to definitely not find a man is Hollywood.” “You are much better off staying home and being the prettiest girl in Paris, New York, Chicago and Budapest rather than the 27,304th prettiest girl in Hollywood.” “If you even can just barely stand a man in, say, Pittsburgh, you’ll him in Paris. On the other hand, if you should find a man in Paris, by all means leave him in Paris, because if you take him somewhere else, you’ll find that it wasn’t the man, but, as the song goes, it was Paris that you loved.” “Any man who cannot enjoy receiving lovely flowers [from a woman] and thinks it is being a sissy is not very secure in being a man.” On romance: “A successful romance is like a game of tug-of-war.” “But remember, playing hard-to-get comes he thinks he’s got you.
If you play hard-to-get while he’s playing hard-to-get then nobody gets anybody.” “Let’s face it, nine times out of ten, intellectual men would rather go to bed with a good book. You can never be as unhappy alone than as unhappy as you can be with somebody you don’t want to be with.
If you think it’s insulting that I compare people with animals, well, if you knew how I love animals, you would understand that coming from me, this is a compliment.” “I tell you, in this world being a little crazy helps to keep you sane.” “Any woman who slops around the house all the time with grease on her face and curlers in her hair in front of her husband is a dumb woman.
I always have; not because my husbands don’t trust me but because I don’t trust myself.” “I’m a compulsive buyer. The only problem was I divorced him before the escrow was finished.” “Diamonds are a better investment for a married woman than anything else because if it should ever happen that some day you wind up getting a divorce and all the property is being divided up, your husband will probably say, if he is a gentleman, ‘We will share all of the other property, but you go ahead and keep all your diamonds.
After all, I can’t wear them.’ (I hope you are married to that type of man, because some men I know, they’ll wear them).” “People say you can’t go wrong with a blue-chip stock like AT&T, but what happens when finally everybody gets sick and tired of the phone ringing every time they are doing something important that shouldn’t be interrupted, like taking a bath or cooking a soufflé or making love, and they say, ‘The hell with it’ and rip their phones out by the roots, which I feel like doing more and more all the time.” On love: “Sometimes a language barrier will keep love alive longer.” “Men fall in love with their eyes—they like what they see—and women fall in love with their ears—they like what they hear!!
” “If you catch that wonderful man, what does age matter?
After all, love is blind, and it is also not good at arithmetic.” “Unfortunately, it’s true that most of the men I choose are the type most women would be attracted to, because I’m such a careful shopper.” “Love should be an inspiration, not an obligation.” “Let’s face it: love and marriage are really two entirely different animals, like tigers and horses.
Also, in a harem the only men you would be allowed to talk to, besides your husband, would be eunuchs, and I’ve had enough of them since I have lived in Hollywood.” “No matter what a man is an expert in, he always thinks he’s also an expert at being a lover.” “As I have always said, ‘Three’s company, but four’s an orgy.’ And orgies are not good for anybody--except Fellini, who films them just beautifully.” On family: “If you can fight directly with your mother you can save a fortune in psychiatrist’s bills.” “As far as I am concerned, you shouldn’t look twice at a mama’s boy. You are too busy beating men off with a baseball bat.
In fact, not even once.” “As for custody, this is pretty easy to figure out. Also I hope for you that you don’t spend too much of your time reading.” “Emphasize your good points, your face or your legs or your derriere or something else that men normally find attractive, rather than your elbows or your feet.
Nobody can be amusing or entertaining on a diet.” “There is no diet for a big ego.” “They say that all men basically prefer rounded women, sweet wine, and Tchaikovsky.
If you want to be attractive to a man, you should have a little flesh and not be just bones like a model.
It must be all right to do if Audrey does it.” “These days, any man between the ages of 15 and 95 can produce children—and so can even a test tube. They give away your age.” On dating: “The best way to attract a man immediately is to have a magnificent bosom and a half-size brain and let both of them show.
