Dorothy Lamour quotes

  • Girl, there ain't a boy in this town who can hold a candle to Beau Vincent with his shirt off.

  • My girl and my kid gets the best, always.

  • The usual sniggering examples of animal behaviour were brought in to explain cheating. Funny how the behaviour of shrews and gibbons is never used to explain table manners or road safety or gardening, only sex. Anyway, it was bad Darwinism. Taking the example of a monkey and applying it to yourself misses the point that animal behaviour is made for the benefit of the species, not as an excuse for the individual. Being incapable of sustaining a stable pair and supporting children is really not in the interests of our species. Neither is it really in the best interests of the philanderer.

  • The '60s are gone, dope will never be as cheap, sex never as free, and the rock and roll never as great.

  • If you don't have sex and you don't do drugs, your rock 'n' roll better be awfully good.

  • If you are looking for a kindly, well-to-do older gentleman who is no longer interested in sex, take out an ad in The Wall Street Journal.

  • I'm sorry, but I do hate this differentiation between the sexes. 'The modern girl has a thoroughly businesslike attitude to life' That sort of thing. It's not a bit true! Some girls are businesslike and some aren't. Some men are sentimental and muddle-headed, others are clear-headed and logical. There are just different types of brains.

  • Tell me, why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why?.

  • Achievement has no color

  • Self - development should be a perpetual process. In life you are either growing or rotting. You're moving forward or backwards; there is no standing still.
