Sandrine Bonnaire quotes

  • I don't really mind what people say about my love life or anything like that, but the one thing is that, yes, I do sing and write all my own music. That is something that I hold really dear. And yeah, I made a fool of myself in front of the world, but it was also great to pick myself back up and go on tour.

  • I love life more than I love death.

  • In trying to avoid one sin I've committed another.

  • It seems that I have spent my entire life trying to make life more rational and that it was all wasted effort.

  • If at first you don't succeed/You can dust it off and try again/Dust yourself off and try again.
