If I am a legend, then why am I so lonely?
Hollywood is a strange place if you're in trouble. Everybody thinks it's contagious.
When you have lived the life I've lived, when you've loved and suffered, and been madly happy and desperately sad -- well, that's when you realize you'll never be able to set it all down. Maybe you'd rather die first.
Well, we have a whole new year ahead of us. And wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all be a little more gentle with each other, and a little more loving, have a little more empathy, and maybe - next year at this time - we'd like each other a little more.
I can live without money, but I cannot live without love.
How strange when an illusion dies. It's as though you've lost a child.
In the silence of night I have often wished for just a few words of love from one man, rather than the applause of thousands of people.
I try to bring the audience's own drama - tears and laughter they know about - to them.
