There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person. They are you, your private joys and sorrows, and you can never tell them. You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them.
My talents fall within definite limitations. I am not as versatile an actress as some think.

I never said, 'I want to be alone.' I only said, 'I want to be left alone.' There is all the difference.
Life would be so wonderful if we only knew what to do with it.
