Brought up to respect the conventions, love had to end in marriage. I'm afraid it did.
Davis quotes
When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch.
Davis
I love my profession. I would never stop. Relax? I relax when I work. It's my life.




Davis Bette quotes
Attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.
Davis Bette
Old age ain't no place for sissies.
Bette Davis quotes
You will never be happier than you expect. To change your happiness, change your expectation.
Bette Davis
'In the beginning was the Word,' and you must not be tempted with a script just because you have a great part. You want a great role to play, but the whole - the whole - must be good. It'll never succeed if it's just the role you like.
Davis Bette quotes
My passions were all gathered together like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today; I knew it then as purpose.
Davis
May each of my grandsons know, at an early age, what his life's ambition is -- and may he be successful in his pursuit of that goal.
Davis Bette
I think Mr. Reagan has done very well under very difficult circumstances. He's had terrific problems physically and he's managed them very well. But my God, the witch hunt today! Is there any human being alive who hasn't done something bad in their youth - like maybe smoke marijuana once? And this man (Judge Ginsburg) found it necessary to admit it! My God! It would be like Mr. Jack Kennedy sitting down and listing all the women (he knew) before he got in.
Bette Davis
Miss Bankhead isn't well enough known nationally to warrant my imitating her.
