Luise Rainer quotes

I have never had a current state of mind. My mind changes a great deal. I am very affected by any sorrow or sad thing, and I am very affected by joy and beauty.

Some very beautiful things get lost and forgotten. Just as I got lost.

The best imitation in the world is not half as good as a poor original.

The Oscar is not a curse. The real curse is that once you have an Oscar they think you can do anything.

For my second and third pictures, I won Academy Awards. Nothing worse could have happened to me.

I admire people who are creative.

I am an actress. I am not a movie star.

I am sensitive to life, and somehow acting comes to me. I can't explain it.

I don't believe in anything artificial. I don't believe in makeup.

I feel best in nature or near nature.

I felt very alone in Hollywood.

I had immense ambition to become a really valuable actress.

I know the good from the bad, also the in-between, but I was never political.

I remember once Robert Taylor invited me to lunch. I asked him, 'What is your ambition?' He said, 'I want to have 10 very good suits.'

I should have done more. I did too little of everything.

I was one of the horses of the Louis B. Mayer stable, and I thought the films I was given after my Academy Awards were not worthy.

I was very thin, like a boy, and I was very un-sexy.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. John Lennon

I just thank God that I didn't grow up with so much money or privilege because you had to create ways to make it happen. Kim Basinger today

If only media people would stop reaching for the low-hanging fruit, which is cynicism and pessimism, and stopped trying so hard to be hip and cool and have a swagger. Emilio Estevez
