Quote of the Day:

Bea Arthur

  • I'm not playing a role. I'm being myself, whatever the hell that is.
  • I believe that you're here on Earth for a short time, and while you're here, you shouldn't forget it.
  • I'm 5-feet-9, I have a deep voice, and I have a way with a line. What can I do about it? I can't stay home waiting for something different. I think it's a total waste of energy worrying about typecasting.
  • You know, I spend most of my life turning things down. There's a lot of crap out there.
  • PETA has a proven track record of success. Each victory PETA wins for the animals is a stepping stone upon which we build a more compassionate world for all beings - and we will never give up our fight until all animals are treated with respect and kindness.
  • No fruit. No veggie.
  • My dream was to become a very small blonde movie star like Ida Lupino and those other women I saw up there on the screen during the Depression.
  • I... was not too happy to suddenly take on this public role thrust upon me. They just assumed I was the Joan of Arc of the women's movement. And I wasn't at all. It put a lot of unnecessary pressure on me.
  • I really cut my teeth on off-off-off Broadway shows.
  • I suddenly realized that comedy, for me, was just being honest, and playing it for real. I've seen so many wonderful actors who turn into creatures from another planet when they're told they are supposed to be playing comedy.
