Gloria Grahame quotes

  • God wants us to speak to men so that they will feel it, so that they will never forget it.

There is not one of us but is an essential wheel of the machinery and can accomplish all that God calls us to.

Unless one approaches a pure devotee, he cannot understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

And I am two-and-twenty And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

  • I had casually rented an apartment that cost $75 a month because I expected my writing to pay my way.

  • I am officially Jewish, but I’m Jewish in the same way the Olive Garden is an Italian restaurant.

  • There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.

  • One can't have it both ways and both ways is the only way I want it.
