94384. But this is a little different. This is the adult acting. This is a different crowd. It’s more work and more good work. That’s it. People will have their opinion regardless. – Shia LaBeouf

94385. I understand why marriages break up over golf. I can’t even talk about my own handicap because it’s too upsetting. – Shia LaBeouf

94386. I hated golf when we first started, but a big part of the training process was falling in love with this sport, so I went on tour with the UCLA Team. – Shia LaBeouf

94387. I turned down a scholarship to Yale. The problem with college is that there’s a tendency to mistake preparation for productivity. You can prepare all you want, but if you never roll the dice you’ll never be successful. – Shia LaBeouf

94388. I trained more than anybody ever in a golf film ever made – my swing is pretty hot. – Shia LaBeouf

94389. I think there’s a form of honesty, because I used to be very honest with the press, and then it backfired on me, and I understood it. – Shia LaBeouf

94390. I think every young actor in Los Angeles went up for that role. It was between Frankie Muniz and me, and he pulled out, so I got the role. – Shia LaBeouf

94391. I just wish the crowd I was associated with was more passionate about what they were doing and less consumed with the commerce of the art form. – Shia LaBeouf

94392. Not all lucid dreams are useful but they all have a sense of wonder about them. If you must sleep through a third of your life, why should you sleep through your dreams, too? – Stephen LaBerge

94393. Dream research is a wonderful field. All you do is sleep for a living. – Stephen LaBerge

94394. But unlike European countries, America has never finished a map of the United States, only the eastern United States is covered and a few spots here and there. – William Labov

94395. Well, American dialects have been studied for a hundred years or so. – William Labov

94396. We focus upon pairs of words very often which are the same in some areas and different in other areas. – William Labov

94397. This African American Vernacular English shares most of its grammar and vocabulary with other dialects of English. But it is distinct in many ways, and it is more different from standard English than any other dialect spoken in continental North America. – William Labov

94398. It appears that the present-day form of African American English is not the inheritance of the period of slavery, but the creation of the second half of the 20th century. – William Labov

94399. And instead of getting a pepper-and-salt effect, we find very clear and sharp divisions between the dialects of the United States, which are getting more different from each other as time goes on. – William Labov

94400. An important aspect of the current situation is the strong social reaction against suggestions that the home language of African American children be used in the first steps of learning to read and write. – William Labov

94401. I am now completing research supported by NSF and NEH that is mapping changes in the English language through all of North America, for both mainstream and minority communities. – William Labov

94402. However, research in the years that followed found that in many of its important features, African American Vernacular English was becoming not less, but more different from other dialects. – William Labov

94403. But for me, it feels like a natural extension of what I’ve been doing: exploring relationships. Here you have two relationships and we can explore how difficult it is for people to be together. – Neil LaBute

94404. First I would probably place men at the bottom of the food chain. On a grander scale, I would say they’re reacting to change. Feminism has got to be part of that. – Neil LaBute

94405. Everyone has a story. – Neil LaBute

94406. Everybody has the ability to be manipulative, to be hateful and deceitful. – Neil LaBute

94407. But even with a character like Cary who is relatively outlandish, at the end of the movie he’s in a place where I wouldn’t have expected him to be – taking on the responsibility of a woman who is pregnant and who used to be his best friend’s wife. – Neil LaBute

94408. And with Aaron, I’d have to find a reason not to work with him. – Neil LaBute

94409. And I’ve got some screenplays and plays ready to dip into when I need to. – Neil LaBute

94410. Everyone has a little bit of Howard and Chad in them. I think there’s Christine in all men as well. – Neil LaBute

94411. You start as an audience member and create a world you’re interested in, and then you move into the telling of those stories, bringing what has interested you as an audience member. – Neil LaBute

94412. Without In The Company of Men, I could still be teaching, so who knows if this would’ve existed. – Neil LaBute

94413. With In the Company of Men, the misogynist label stuck early and firmly. In the end, it probably did hurt the film a bit, because getting women into the theaters was difficult. – Neil LaBute

94414. We live in a disposable society. It’s easier to throw things out than to fix them. We even give it a name – we call it recycling. – Neil LaBute

94415. We humans are a fairly barbarous bunch. – Neil LaBute

94416. Relationships in general make people a bit nervous. It’s about trust. Do I trust you enough to go there? – Neil LaBute

94417. In a relationship you have to open yourself up. – Neil LaBute

94418. People think my work is therapeutic. I don’t see it that way. It’s not like I’m saving money from a weekly therapy visit by writing down my life. – Neil LaBute

94419. People have perhaps gotten to the point where for the most part movies are a just bit of escape. – Neil LaBute

94420. My business is can I create a world that’s possible and could happen? I think that’s the only thing that I have to do, and I think that I have done that each time. – Neil LaBute

94421. My best male friend is my best friend until he crosses me. We’re all protective of the self. – Neil LaBute

94422. Just in the past few years – since I’ve been making movies, which isn’t a very long time – you now have a culture that is fascinated and informed about the box office in a way that sometimes filmmakers weren’t even. – Neil LaBute

94423. There is a lot of absurdity sometimes, not just in Mormonism but often in other religions that want to pretend that no bad happens in their church, rather than taking care of what bad does happen. – Neil LaBute

94424. I think the more the actor lets you know what he thinks of the character, the less the audience cares – like a comedian who laughs at his own jokes. – Neil LaBute

94425. Unrequited love is always a great thing. – Neil LaBute

94426. If we put the camera on ourselves, our friends and neighbors, we’ll come up with some scary stuff. – Neil LaBute

94428. I have a healthy view of what one can do with art. – Neil LaBute

94429. I make movies I want to see. – Neil LaBute

94430. I think Christine and Chad are on the opposite extremes of the spectrum. Christine is a model victim, and Chad is a model perpetrator, and Howard is closer to the middle. – Neil LaBute

94431. I wanted to make these people real, not like they were in a painting. Like these are people who don’t know they’re in a period movie. Those concerns are incredibly immediate. – Neil LaBute

94432. I wanted to tell a story that interested me as much in the telling as in the watching. – Neil LaBute

94433. I was always looking for the most dramatic emphasis. – Neil LaBute

94434. I was very careful to cast guys who were very good-looking and very fit and who had a certain sense of privilege about them, because with that sense of privilege comes contempt. – Neil LaBute

94435. I will say that the idea of a woman being deceptive came from that original discussion with critics and reporters about if woman could do that kind of thing. Evelyn, herself, grew out of the discussions about how capable women are of deceit and lying and manipulation. – Neil LaBute

94436. I would be more frightened as a writer if people thought my movies were like science fiction. – Neil LaBute

94437. I’m more than open to hope, but I think men and women have a difficult time dealing with each other and often take the low road. – Neil LaBute

94438. I see bits and pieces of me in all the characters in my films. – Neil LaBute

94439. Writings scatter to the winds blank checks in an insane charge. And were they not such flying leaves, there would be no purloined letters. – Jacques Lacan

94440. The knowledge that there is a part of the psychic functions that are out of conscious reach, we did not need to wait for Freud to know this! – Jacques Lacan

94441. Yet, analytical truth is not as mysterious, or as secret, so as to not allow us to see that people with a talent for directing consciences see truth rise spontaneously. – Jacques Lacan

94442. Since Freud, the center of man is not where we thought it was; one has to go on from there. – Jacques Lacan

94443. The narration, in fact, doubles the drama with a commentary without which no mise en scene would be possible. – Jacques Lacan

94444. We emphasize that such a form of communication is not absent in man, however evanescent a naturally given object may be for him, split as it is in its submission to symbols. – Jacques Lacan

94445. What could be more convincing, moreover, than the gesture of laying one’s cards face up on the table? – Jacques Lacan

94446. Which is why we cannot say of the purloined letter that, like other objects, it must be or not be in a particular place but that unlike them it will be and not be where it is, wherever it goes. – Jacques Lacan

94447. Symptoms, those you believe you recognize, seem to you irrational because you take them in an isolated manner, and you want to interpret them directly. – Jacques Lacan

94448. What does it matter how many lovers you have if none of them gives you the universe? – Jacques Lacan

94449. The Mirror Stage as formative in the function of the I as revealed in psychoanalytic experience. – Jacques Lacan

94450. A geometry implies the heterogeneity of locus, namely that there is a locus of the Other. Regarding this locus of the Other, of one sex as Other, as absolute Other, what does the most recent development in topology allow us to posit? – Jacques Lacan

94451. In other words, the man who is born into existence deals first with language; this is a given. He is even caught in it before his birth. – Jacques Lacan

94452. Psychoanalysis is a terribly efficient instrument, and because it is more and more a prestigious instrument, we run the risk of using it with a purpose for which it was not made for, and in this way we may degrade it. – Jacques Lacan

94453. Obsessional does not necessarily mean sexual obsession, not even obsession for this, or for that in particular; to be an obsessional means to find oneself caught in a mechanism, in a trap increasingly demanding and endless. – Jacques Lacan

94454. For the signifier is a unit in its very uniqueness, being by nature symbol only of an absence. – Jacques Lacan

94455. But this emphasis would be lavished in vain, if it served, in your opinion, only to abstract a general type from phenomena whose particularity in our work would remain the essential thing for you, and whose original arrangement could be broken up only artificially. – Jacques Lacan

94456. As is known, it is in the realm of experience inaugurated by psychoanalysis that we may grasp along what imaginary lines the human organism, in the most intimate recesses of its being, manifests its capture in a symbolic dimension. – Jacques Lacan

94457. Aside from that reservation, a fictive tale even has the advantage of manifesting symbolic necessity more purely to the extent that we may believe its conception arbitrary. – Jacques Lacan

94458. A museum show is the acid test for photojournalism. – Richard Lacayo

94459. There’s a lot of reflection that goes on whenever I write a song – it’s been a wild whirlwind last couple of years and there’s a lot to talk about, and hopefully that’s evident in the music. – Nick Lachey

94460. Her success is my success. – Nick Lachey

94461. I always feel stupid giving advice since I’ve been married, what, a year? I can say this: Be in it for the long haul and just know there are going to be rough patches. No two people are the same, there are going to be areas where you just don’t click. – Nick Lachey

94462. I tell her all the time I’d gladly retire and hang out with the kids and clean the house. I want to have a good life and great family, and from a professional standpoint I want to be successful, but it’s not the most important thing at all. – Nick Lachey

94463. I tell people, Don’t take my advice. What do I know? – Nick Lachey

94464. I try to be the best husband I can be, and if people respect that, that’s cool. But there’s no “perfect husband.” We just all try to do the best we can, you know what I mean? – Nick Lachey

94465. It all comes back to the same place, whether she does well, I do well, or we both do well, which is obviously what we’re hoping for. It’s all good. You know? We’re definitely pull for each other. – Nick Lachey

94466. She knows I’m her biggest fan, I cheer for her louder than anybody. – Nick Lachey

94467. We have so much left to experience and learn about each other – it’s almost like we’ve been remarried with the show being over. Now it’s a whole new life for us. – Nick Lachey

94468. There’s no bigger supporter in Jessica’s life than me. – Nick Lachey

94469. This is a great time in our lives and careers. – Nick Lachey

94470. To me, having kids is the ultimate job in life. I want to be most successful at being a good father. – Nick Lachey

94471. We can’t control it, and we’ve basically quit trying. People are going to talk, and people are going to lie. – Nick Lachey

94472. We live in a bizarre world – there are cameras in our house! – Nick Lachey

94473. Marriage is a team effort. Both of us share that philosophy. – Nick Lachey

94474. We’re planning on being married for a long, long time. – Nick Lachey

94475. I try to use all of my senses when describing a setting, and try to think of everything that would impact a character in any given scene. – Mercedes Lackey

94476. If there are going to be people out there making war on other people, don’t you think it’s a good idea for some of those people to at least follow a code of ethics? Not ‘honor’ but something you can pin down and be sure of, something with the same rules for everybody. – Mercedes Lackey

94477. It makes sense for people who are good at fighting to go out and do it-because if they’re good at it, that means the fewest number of other people die. – Mercedes Lackey

94478. Magic, like technology, is a tool. – Mercedes Lackey

94479. These are my friends, my family. It would be hell on earth to spend the rest of my life leading them into situations where some of them are going to get killed… but it would be worse watching someone well-meaning but incompetent or untrained double those deaths. – Mercedes Lackey

94480. I always work from an outline, so I know all the of the broad events and some of the finer details before I begin writing the book. – Mercedes Lackey

94481. In Italy, the Milanese are well organized but follow bourgeois taste. They adhere to certain codes of elegance, but not to individualism. – Christian Lacroix

94482. But the Milanese have made bad choices, bad fashion, and bad jewelry. – Christian Lacroix

94483. Going out in Paris was like going out in the ’30s dressed like the Andrews Sisters. It was everything I’d seen in books at my grandparents’ house, only it was our generation. – Christian Lacroix

94486. The idea of seeing everybody clad the same is not really my cup of tea. – Christian Lacroix

94499. For if God is a title of the highest power, He must be incorruptible, perfect, incapable of suffering, and subject to no other being; therefore they are not gods whom necessity compels to obey the one greatest God. – Lactantius

94500. For if the honour paid to Him is shared by others, He altogether ceases to be worshipped, since His religion requires us to believe that He is the one and only God. – Lactantius

94528. People don’t want to suffer. They want to sound good immediately, and this is one of the biggest problems in the world. – Steve Lacy

94529. Play difficult and interesting things. If you play boring things, you risk losing your appetite. Saxophone can be tedious with too much of the same. – Steve Lacy

94531. Risk is at the heart of jazz. Every note we play is a risk. – Steve Lacy

94534. The saxophone is a very interesting machine, but I’m more interested in music. – Steve Lacy

94535. The more original something is, the more of a threat it seems until the people catch up with it. That happened with Thelonious Monk. It happened with anybody who is really original. – Steve Lacy

94536. I’ve been working on the soprano saxophone for 40 years, and the possibilities are astounding. It’s up to you, the only limit is the imagination. – Steve Lacy

94537. It starts with a single sound. If there’s something in that sound, then it’s worth continuing. – Steve Lacy

94538. It’s very important to go through periods where you sound just rotten and you know it, and you have to persevere or give up. – Steve Lacy

94539. If you listen to Louis Armstrong from 1929, you will never hear anything better than that really, and you will never hear anything more free than that. – Steve Lacy

94541. Whoever has an original thing to say, it is sort of a threat to the status quo. – Steve Lacy

94542. If you have music you want to play that no one asks you to play, you have to go out and find where you can play it. It’s called do or die. – Steve Lacy

94550. Register is very important. Music sounds best in a certain register. – Steve Lacy

94772. I’ve inherited a sense of that loss from my parents because it was so palpable all the time while I was growing up, the sense of what my parents had sacrificed in moving to the United States, and yet at the same time, building a life here and all that that entailed. – Jhumpa Lahiri

94773. I can’t tell you exactly how I found it. It was just a process of writing a lot of stories and reading a lot of stories that I admired and just working and working until the sentences sounded right and I was satisfied with them. – Jhumpa Lahiri

94797. I would take up any small job on the sets, just so that I could hang around with the hope of getting noticed. – Christine Lahti

94798. I wanted to be an actress. In college I was a serious feminist and very political. I was determined to get one thing out of my career and that was respect. I didn’t want money. I didn’t care about fame. – Christine Lahti

94799. I think all industries are sexist in nature and I don’t think the film industry is any different. – Christine Lahti

94804. I demanded two weeks of rehearsal because to me as an actor, that’s the most important time. – Christine Lahti

94805. Competition is very good… as long as its healthy. It’s what makes one strive to be better. – Christine Lahti

94806. After doing so many different roles, if you don’t stretch yourself, there’s no excitement left. – Christine Lahti

94816. It’s not tough at all as long as the fans are yelling, screaming and hollering. – Bill Laimbeer

94817. I thought we were aggressive across the board defensively, and you could just see it grow. As the game went along, you could see the confidence grow. It showed in the fourth quarter. – Bill Laimbeer

94818. I played in Joe Louis in a playoff game. I played there when the roof caved in for half a season. The facility is great for basketball because it goes straight up, so you feel like the fans are on top of you. – Bill Laimbeer

94819. We came in today with a chip on our shoulder to prove who we are. – Bill Laimbeer

94820. Creative people who can’t help but explore other mental territories are at greater risk, just as someone who climbs a mountain is more at risk than someone who just walks along a village lane. – R. D. Laing

94821. The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change; until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds. – R. D. Laing

94822. We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing. – R. D. Laing

94823. We are effectively destroying ourselves by violence masquerading as love. – R. D. Laing

94824. We are all murderers and prostitutes – no matter to what culture, society, class, nation one belongs, no matter how normal, moral, or mature, one takes oneself to be. – R. D. Laing

94825. We are all in a post-hypnotic trance induced in early infancy. – R. D. Laing

94827. There is no such condition as ‘schizophrenia,’ but the label is a social fact and the social fact a political event. – R. D. Laing

94829. Schizophrenia cannot be understood without understanding despair. – R. D. Laing

94841. Einstein’s results again turned the tables and now very few philosophers or scientists still think that scientific knowledge is, or can be, proven knowledge. – Imre Lakatos

94842. If even in science there is no a way of judging a theory but by assessing the number, faith and vocal energy of its supporters, then this must be even more so in the social sciences: truth lies in power. – Imre Lakatos

94843. Indeed, this epistemological theory of the relation between theory and experiment differs sharply from the epistemological theory of naive falsificationism. – Imre Lakatos

94844. It would be wrong to assume that one must stay with a research programme until it has exhausted all its heuristic power, that one must not introduce a rival programme before everybody agrees that the point of degeneration has probably been reached. – Imre Lakatos

94845. The positive heuristic of the programme saves the scientist from becoming confused by the ocean of anomalies. – Imre Lakatos

94846. Our empirical criterion for a series of theories is that it should produce new facts. The idea of growth and the concept of empirical character are soldered into one. – Imre Lakatos

94860. The early ELP albums were pioneering in a way. – Greg Lake

94861. As I said to Ringo, I was in a successful Rock N Roll band. He was in a band that changed the world. That’s the difference. – Greg Lake

94863. I just got a call one day from Ringo asking me if I wanted to go out on the tour. It was as simple as that. He was putting together this band and he heard of me in the context of doing this and he gave me a call. I jumped at the chance. – Greg Lake

94864. I would like to involve myself in some black music. I would like to do some blues and some gospel music. I want to try stuff from other genres and try to widen my musical base. – Greg Lake

94865. Making a comeback is one of the most difficult things to do with dignity. – Greg Lake

94866. Philosophically, what I have learned is to thy own self be true. That is the biggest lesson of all. Relax; music is fun. To many people take it to seriously because of the money involved. – Greg Lake

94868. I wasn’t a sex symbol, I was a sex zombie. – Veronica Lake

94877. You can’t get rid of it with exercise alone. You can do the most vigorous exercise and only burn up 300 calories in an hour. If you’ve got fat on your body, the exercise firms and tones the muscles. But when you use that tape measure, what makes it bigger? It’s the fat! – Jack LaLanne

94878. Yes, exercise is the catalyst. That’s what makes everything happen: your digestion, your elimination, your sex life, your skin, hair, everything about you depends on circulation. And how do you increase circulation? – Jack LaLanne

94879. What you need to do is get that tape measure out, and start measuring that gut. Then you start working out and you start eating properly till that gut gets down close to it was when you were in your 20’s. Then you’ll find out what your weight should be. – Jack LaLanne

94880. They thought that athletes that worked out with my system wouldn’t be able to throw a ball because they’d be too muscle bound. Those are the misconceptions I had to go through for about 40 years. – Jack LaLanne

94881. So many older people, they just sit around all day long and they don’t get any exercise. Their muscles atrophy, and they lose their strength, their energy and vitality by inactivity. – Jack LaLanne

94882. Remember this: your body is your slave; it works for you. – Jack LaLanne

94883. Probably millions of Americans got up this morning with a cup of coffee, a cigarette and a donut. No wonder they are sick and fouled up. – Jack LaLanne

94884. Focus on your problem zones, your strength, your energy, your flexibility and all the rest. Maybe your chest is flabby or your hips or waist need toning. Also, you should change your program every thirty days. That’s the key. – Jack LaLanne

94885. We don’t know all the answers. If we knew all the answers we’d be bored, wouldn’t we? We keep looking, searching, trying to get more knowledge. – Jack LaLanne

94886. Do you know how many calories are in butter and cheese and ice cream? Would you get your dog up in the morning for a cup of coffee and a donut? – Jack LaLanne

94887. Look at the average American diet: ice cream, butter, cheese, whole milk, all this fat. People don’t realize how much of this stuff you get by the end of the day. High blood pressure is from all this high-fat eating. – Jack LaLanne

94888. I do it as a therapy. I do it as something to keep me alive. We all need a little discipline. Exercise is my discipline. – Jack LaLanne

94889. I have spoken to a whole group of millionaires, head executives at Microsoft. Boy did I chew those guys out. – Jack LaLanne

94890. I only eat fish – no chicken, no turkey, just fish. I get all my protein from fish and egg whites. – Jack LaLanne

94891. I’d rather see you drink a glass of wine than a glass of milk. So many people drink Coca-Cola and all these soft drinks with sugar. Some of these drinks have 8 or 9 teaspoons of sugar in them What’s the good of living if you can’t have the things that give a little enjoyment? – Jack LaLanne

94892. If you’ve got a big gut and you start doing sit-ups, you are going to get bigger because you build up the muscle. You’ve got to get rid of that fat! How do you get rid of fat? By changing your diet. – Jack LaLanne

94893. By exercise. I’ll tell you one thing, you don’t always have to be on the go. I sit around a lot, I read a lot, and I do watch television. But I also work out for two hours every day of my life, even when I’m on the road. – Jack LaLanne

94894. Originally the dream was about traveling and developing a job that would permit me to travel. And I decided to go into street performing because it was a traveling job; it would let me go around the world. – Guy Laliberte

94895. I believe there are so many other disciplines and themes that we still haven’t explored yet. It’s infinite what we can apply our creativity to. – Guy Laliberte

94896. We had every problems starting a big top could have. The tent fell down on the first day. We had problems getting people into the shows. It was only with the courage and arrogance of youth that we survived. – Guy Laliberte

94897. We didn’t reinvent the circus. We repackaged it in a much more modern way. – Guy Laliberte

94898. We are in a position of financial and social power, and we could be agents of change in our society. Without pretension, I believe we could be a nice little gardener who takes care of the garden, and hopefully our neighbor will do the same. Then, maybe we’ll achieve a better world. – Guy Laliberte

94899. We are each but a quarter note in a grand symphony. – Guy Laliberte

94901. Our biggest goal is to continue to force ourselves to always start our creative work on a white page and not take advantage of past successes and challenging ourselves. – Guy Laliberte

94902. Our approach was very simple. It was about creating a universal language. A show that will be attractive toward every people coming from all over the world. And that was a big thing. – Guy Laliberte

94903. We’re not afraid of risking what was our success yesterday in order to explore some new field. We’re adventurous. We like the challenge of unknown territory, unknown artistic field, and that’s what stimulates us. – Guy Laliberte

94904. I believe in nurturing creativity and offering a haven for creators, enabling them to develop their ideas to the fullest. With more and more talented creators being drawn to Cirque in an environment that fulfills them, these are ideal to continue developing great new shows. – Guy Laliberte

94905. I have seen many successful people fail after they start fearing they might lose what they have built. – Guy Laliberte

94906. Inside every adult there’s still a child that lingers. We’re happiness merchants – giving people the opportunity to dream like children. – Guy Laliberte

94907. I am blessed for what I have, but I believed in it from the beginning. Today, the dream is the same: I still want to travel, I still want to entertain, and I most certainly still want to have fun. – Guy Laliberte

94908. I believe that the profits will come from the quality of your creative products. Since the beginning, I’ve always wanted to develop a self-feeding circle of creative productions: the positive financial returns from one show would be used to develop and create a new show, and so on. – Guy Laliberte

94909. I don’t believe in pitfalls. I believe in taking risks and not doing the same thing twice. – Guy Laliberte

94910. I like to not be too involved in the beginning and during the process so as to keep this fresh look and be able to give constructive recommendation on the final production. – Guy Laliberte

94911. In life I’ve learned one thing; if you want to be good you have to connect with the best people. So I got very close to the high-stakes players here. I get to watch them and play with them a little bit. – Guy Laliberte

94912. Business is difficult. But it could be approached two ways: Seriously, or with the same way you’re doing your job, with entertainment aspect, with pleasure, with fun. And we decided to try to make it as fun that we do our creativity. – Guy Laliberte

94961. Mr. DeMille’s theory of sexual difference was that marriage is an artificial state for women. The want to be taken, ruled, raped. That was his theory. – Hedy Lamarr

94962. The ceremony took six minutes. The marriage lasted about the same amount of time though we didn’t get a divorce for almost a year. – Hedy Lamarr

94964. Perhaps my problem in marriage-and it is the problem of many women-was to want both intimacy and independence. It is a difficult line to walk, yet both needs are important to a marriage. – Hedy Lamarr

94965. My mother always called me an ugly weed, so I never was aware of anything until I was older. Plain girls should have someone telling them they are beautiful. Sometimes this works miracles. – Hedy Lamarr

94967. Men are most virile and most attractive between the ages of 35 and 55. Under 35 a man has too much to learn, and I don’t have time to teach him. – Hedy Lamarr

94968. Many people are target people. Once when Louis B. Mayer insulted me I poured a glass of water over his head. – Hedy Lamarr

94969. Making pictures, for an actress, is like betting, for a gambler. Each time you make a picture you try to analyze why you won or lost. – Hedy Lamarr

94970. The ladder of success in Hollywood is usually a press agent, actor, director, producer, leading man; and you are a star if you sleep with each of them in that order. Crude, but true. – Hedy Lamarr

94972. I am a very good shot. I have hunted for every kind of animal. But I would never kill an animal during mating season. – Hedy Lamarr

94973. I advise everybody not to save: spend your money. Most people save all their lives and leave it to somebody else. Money is to be enjoyed. – Hedy Lamarr

94974. Dirt makes a man look masculine. Let your hair blow in the wind, and all that. It’s OK. All you have to do is look neat when you have to look neat. – Hedy Lamarr

94975. Confidence is something you’re born with. I know I had loads of it even at the age of 15. – Hedy Lamarr

94976. Compromise and tolerance are magic words. It took me 40 years to become philosophical. – Hedy Lamarr

94977. I am not ashamed to say that no man I ever met was my father’s equal, and I never loved any other man as much. – Hedy Lamarr

94978. Any girl can look glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid. – Hedy Lamarr

94979. Experts always know everything but the fine points. When I took my citizenship exams, no one there knew how the White House came to be called the White House. – Hedy Lamarr

94980. Analysis gave me great freedom of emotions and fantastic confidence. I felt I had served my time as a puppet. – Hedy Lamarr

94981. American men, as a group, seem to be interested in only two things, money and breasts. It seems a very narrow outlook. – Hedy Lamarr

94982. All my six husbands married me for different reasons. – Hedy Lamarr

94983. All creative people want to do the unexpected. – Hedy Lamarr

94984. All a woman needs is a good bath, clean clothes, and for her hair to be combed. These things she can do herself. I very seldom go to the hairdresser, but when I do, I just marvel. – Hedy Lamarr

94985. A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires. – Hedy Lamarr

94986. Because you don’t live near a bakery doesn’t mean you have to go without cheesecake. – Hedy Lamarr

94987. I have always felt that if a man gives you a solid gold key to his door he is entitled to the courtesy of a visit. – Hedy Lamarr

94988. I must quit marrying men who feel inferior to me. Somewhere there must be a man who could be my husband and not feel inferior. – Hedy Lamarr

94989. I know why most people never get rich. They put the money ahead of the job. If you just think of the job, the money will automatically follow. This never fails. – Hedy Lamarr

94990. I know when I’m working I seldom get into trouble. My educated guess is that boredom has caused most of the problems with Hollywood celebrities. – Hedy Lamarr

94991. Dates with actors, finally, just seemed to me evenings of shop talk. I got sick of it after a hile. So the more famous I became, the more I narrowed down my choices. – Hedy Lamarr

94992. I have never seen a wrestling match or a prize fight, and I don’t want to. When I find out a man is interested in these sports, I drop him. – Hedy Lamarr

94993. I appreciate subtlety. I have never enjoyed a kiss in front of the camera. There’s nothing to it except not getting your lipstick smeared. – Hedy Lamarr

94994. I’ve been an important star and lived a full life, yet I only hve three close friends. I guess that’s all anyone can expect. – Hedy Lamarr

94995. I find very often that very ugly women have really handsome men and vice versa because they don’t have any competition. Sometimes handsome men have avoided me. – Hedy Lamarr

94996. I never go to funerals. To me a person is dead when he breathes for the last time. After that, your memories should be personal. – Hedy Lamarr

94997. I enjoy countless hundreds pursuing me. I love those who love me the most. I am sort of flattered by men showing attention to me. – Hedy Lamarr

94998. I don’t have any gnawing guilt over contributing to any unhappiness suffered by my husbands. They were as much to blame as I was. – Hedy Lamarr

94999. I don’t fear death because I don’t fear anything I don’t understand. When I start to think about it, I order a massage and it goes away. – Hedy Lamarr

95000. I don’t believe in life after death. But I do believe in some grinding destiny that watches over us on earth. If I didn’t, the safety valve would give and the boiler would explode. – Hedy Lamarr
