(on Hollywood) It was all beauty and it was all talent, and if you had it they protected you.
A successful man is one who makes more money than a wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
The thing about happiness is that it doesn't help you to grow; only unhappiness does that. So I'm grateful that my bed of roses was made up equally of blossoms and thorns. I've had a privileged, creative, exciting life, and I think that the parts that were less joyous were preparing me, testing me, strengthening me.
It's said in Hollywood that you should always forgive your enemies - because you never know when you'll have to work with them.
How does it happen that something that makes so much sense in the moonlight doesn't make any sense at all in the sunlight?
I've always loved a challenge.
Humor has been the balm of my life, but it's been reserved for those close to me, not part of the public Lana.
