„Она блистала в компании, а ум ее был остр... Она удивительно владела словом, а ее эмоциональную силу можно было сравнить лишь с землетрясением.“ О Вивьен Ли

„It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.“ Blithe Spirit


„I like long walks, especialy when they are taken by people who annoy me.“

„I don't know what London's coming to — the higher the buildings the lower the morals.“ Collected Sketches and Lyrics

„My importance to the world is relatively small. On the other hand, my importance to myself is tremendous. I am all I have to work with, to play with, to suffer and to enjoy. It is not the eyes of others that I am wary of, but of my own. I do not intend to let myself down more than I can possibly help, and I find that the fewer illusions I have about myself or the world around me, the better company I am for myself.“

„Wouldn't it be dreadful to live in a country where they didn't have tea?“

„Having to read footnotes resembles having to go downstairs to answer the door while in the midst of making love.“

„Thousands of people have talent. I might as well congratulate you for having eyes in your head. The one and only thing that counts is: Do you have staying power?“


„Strange how potent cheap music is.“ Private Lives

„Work is more fun than fun.“

„What I adore is supreme professionalism. I’m bored by writers who can write only when it’s raining.“

„Work hard, do the best you can, don't ever lose faith in yourself and take no notice of what other people say about you.“


„Grab it while you can — grab every scrap of happiness while you can“

„I have a memory like an elephant. In fact, elephants often consult me.“

„I love criticism just so long as it's unqualified praise.“

„AMANDA: I think very few people are completely normal really, deep down in their private lives.“ Private Lives an Intimate Comedy in Three Acts
