#1. Greta Wickham. He used to say if only Nora and Greta were here now, we wouldn't be in this mess, even when there was no mess at all." "Oh, he talked very warmly about you," Peggy interjected, "and William Junior and Thomas had nothing but good words to say about Maurice Webster when he was teaching them. I remember one day Thomas had a temperature and we all wanted him to stay in bed and he wouldn't, oh no he wouldn't, because he had a double commerce class with Mr. Webster that he could not miss. You know they wanted Thomas to stay in Dublin when he qualified. Oh, he got offers with very good prospects! We told him he should consider - Author: Colm Toibin

- Author: Carol Rifka Brunt
Greta quotes by Carol Rifka Brunt

#11. Atheists' anger doesn't prove that we're selfish, or joyless, or miserable. It shows that we have compassion, and a sense of justice. We're angry because we see terrible harm all around us, and we feel desperately motivated to stop it. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina
#12. Have you lost your mind?" I yelled. "Did you have to humiliate him in front of his comrades? Isn't it enough that he already hates you with the fire of a thousand suns?" Her expression was grim. Unfeeling. She was in no hurry to answer, but when she did, her tone held no emotion. "Malich laughed the night he told me that he had killed Greta. He reveled in her death. He said it was easy. Her death cost him nothing. It will now. Every day that I breathe, I will make it cost him something. Every time I see that same smug grin on his face, I will make him pay for it." She dumped her winnings on the bed and looked back at me. "So the short answer to your question, Kaden, is no. It's not enough. It will never be enough. - Author: Mary E. Pearson

Bridget nodded.

Greta clucked and shook her head. "To each, her own," she muttered.
You have no magic in you, Bridget thought. - Author: Ann Brashares

Greta quotes by Greta Salpeter
#16. The fact that your lifespan is an infinitesimally tiny fragment in the life of the universe, and that there is, at the very least, a strong possibility that when you die, you disappear completely and forever, and that in five hundred years nobody will remember you and in five billion years the Earth will be boiled into the sun: this can be a profound and defining truth about your existence that you reflexively repulse, that you flinch away from and refuse to accept or even think about, consistently pushing to the back of your mind whenever it sneaks up, for fear that if you allow it to sit in your mind even for a minute, it will swallow everything else. It can make everything you do, and everything anyone else does, seem meaningless, trivial to the point of absurdity. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina
#17. Getting bad reviews or doing something that's not great is also really good for you as an actor. It also makes me feel as an actor that I've earned my stripes a bit. - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#18. Reality is a harsh mistress. She demands our honesty. She demands our work. She demands that we give up comforts, that we let ourselves feel pain, that we accept how small we are and how little control we have over our lives. And she demands that we make her our top priority. But she is more beautiful, and more powerful, and more surprising, and more fascinating, and more endlessly rewarding, than anything we could ever make up about her. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina

You must have seen someone else." Pino, crying, said, "It was him. Tullio was so brave. Yelling at the men who were about to shoot him, calling them cowards . . . and . . . oh God, it was . . . horrible." He went to his father and hugged him while Uncle Albert held Aunt Greta, who had turned hysterical. "I hate them," she said. "My own people and I hate them." When she'd calmed down, Uncle Albert said, "I have to go tell his mother." "She - Author: Mark T. Sullivan

#27. There was a terrible stretch of time in Einar's life - from the time Hans left Bluetooth until the day he met Greta at the academy - when he lived without anyone to reveal his secrets to.

Greta quotes by David Ebershoff
#28. When Mrs. Bush was First Lady, she went all over the Mideast talking about breast cancer awareness and the need for early screening. She did this in places where the cultures prohibit such discussion or even detection efforts. - Author: Greta Van Susteren

Greta quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#30. We are about to sacrifice our civilization for the opportunity of a very small number of people to continue to make enormous amounts of money. We are about to sacrifice the biosphere so that rich people in countries like mine can live in luxury. But it is the sufferings of the many which pay for the luxuries of the few. - Author: Greta Thunberg
Greta quotes by Greta Thunberg

Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#32. The only work I did for the next five years after splitting from Vincent was work I'd already lined up. - Author: Greta Scacchi
Greta quotes by Greta Scacchi
#33. Greta knows that for me there are no good parties. I'm okay with one or two people, but more than that and I turn into a naked mole rat. That's what being shy feels like. Like my skin is too thin, the light too bright. Like the best place I could possibly be is in a tunnel far under the cool, dark earth. Someone asks me a question and I stare at them, empty-faced, my brain jammed up with how hard I'm trying to find something interesting to say. And in the end, all I can do is nod or shrug, because the light of their eyes looking at me, waiting for me, is just too much to take. And then it's over and there's one more person in the world who thinks I'm a complete and total waste of space. - Author: Carol Rifka Brunt
Greta quotes by Carol Rifka Brunt
#34. I never wanted to see you again, Greta.
It's so fucking good to see you again, Greta. - Author: Penelope Ward
Greta quotes by Penelope Ward
#35. As we begin to leave Afghanistan, are we fooling ourselves about what we are leaving behind or what we have promised the people of Afghanistan? Especially the women and girls? - Author: Greta Van Susteren
Greta quotes by Greta Van Susteren
#36. Religion is a belief in invisible beings, inaudible voices, intangible entities, undetectable forces, and events and judgments that happen after we die. It therefore has no reality check. And it is therefore uniquely armored against criticism, questioning, and self-correction. It is uniquely armored against anything that might stop it from spinning into extreme absurdity, extreme denial of reality ... and extreme, grotesque immorality. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina
#37. I only said, 'I want to be left alone.' - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo

Greta quotes by Greta Scacchi
#39. I'm tired and nervous and I'm in America. Here you don't know that you live. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#40. Some say we should not engage in activism.

Instead we should leave everything to our politicians and just vote for change instead. But what do we do when there is no political will? What do we do when the politics needed are nowhere in sight? - Author: Greta Thunberg
Greta quotes by Greta Thunberg
#41. We are wasting time, pleads Greta, by passing this burden, this sack of stones, from one to the next, by pushing our pain away. We mustn't do this. We mustn't play Hot Potato with our pain. Let's absorb it ourselves, each of us, she says. Let's inhale it, let's digest it, let's process it into fuel. - Author: Miriam Toews
Greta quotes by Miriam Toews
#42. Some people say that the climate crisis is something we have all created. But that is just another convenient lie. Because if everyone is guilty then no one is to blame. - Author: Greta Thunberg
Greta quotes by Greta Thunberg
#43. I have made enough faces. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#44. The driver bumped his way through the door and plopped down Caitlyn's "luggage." Caitlyn watched Madame Snowe's eyes go to it, widening as
she took it in. Caitlyn's cheeks heated.
Her "luggage" was a Vietnam War-era army green duffel bag, bought for a dollar at a garage sale. Cloud-shaped moisture stains mottled its
faded surface, and jagged stitches of black carpet thread sealed a rip on one end, Caitlyn's clumsy needlework giving the mended hole the look of
one of Frankenstein's scars.
"Is that all you brought?" Greta asked.
Caitlyn nodded, wishing the floor would swallow her.
"Very good. You will have no trouble unpacking, and then you can burn your bag, heh?"
"Reduce, reuse, recycle!" Caitlyn said with false cheer. "We're very big on living green in Oregon. Why buy a new suitcase when someone else's
old duffel bag will do?"
"We'll see that it gets … disposed of properly, - Author: Lisa Cach
Greta quotes by Lisa Cach
#45. The story of my life is about back entrances, side doors, secret elevators and other ways of getting in and out of places so that people won't bother me. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#46. This was a different kind of a kiss, not one that leads to something, but a hard, painful one.
It was a goodbye kiss. - Author: Penelope Ward
Greta quotes by Penelope Ward
#47. From a literary standpoint, I've been loving Raymond Carver's short stories, William Carlos Williams' poems, Richard Siken's 'Crush', John Fante, and Jim Harrison's book of ghazals. I love film and photography too, so many of my songs are very image rich from those influences. - Author: Greta Salpeter
Greta quotes by Greta Salpeter
#48. Greta smiled suddenly, and he had to blink. It was a little like watching a small and self-contained sunrise. 'Thank you,' she said. 'I'm...very glad you're here.'

Greta quotes by Vivian Shaw
#49. I like people who love books and movies and art and want to talk about it all the time, because that's basically what I want to talk about. Intellectuals that are funny. - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#50. Lillian was determined that her next role would be Hester Prynne in Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter and assumed she only needed to find the right actor to play opposite her as Reverend Dimmesdale. Mayer informed her there was a much larger issue at stake; The Scarlet Letter was on the Hays office "blacklist" of books that could not be filmed. The very idea of a blacklist was ridiculous to Lillian and she took up the matter directly with Will Hays. While he would occasionally publicly chastise the studios, Hays never forgot that the full name of his office was the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America and worked to smooth the path any and every way he could. He told Lillian that the major source of objection was "the Protestant Church, especially the Methodists," and directed her to the heads of several church and women's organizations where she forcefully presented her case. Even with Hays's assistance, no other actress had the personal and professional reputation pure enough to garner the response she received: the ban would be lifted if she was "personally responsible" for the film.

Lillian turned her attention to finding the consummate Dimmesdale and Mayer suggested she watch Lars Hanson in The Saga of Gosta Berling. The studio boss had seen Mauritz Stiller's film in Berlin the previous December and he immediately put the director and the film's three stars, Hanson, Mona Martenson, and Greta Gustafsson, all under contract. Lillian agreed - Author: Cari Beauchamp
Greta quotes by Cari Beauchamp
#51. Movies are now more often watched on the small screen anyway. But at least for me, what got lost in that is the difference in the medium. - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#52. I had dreams, but I didn't have the sense that they would necessarily work out. They seemed very far-fetched. - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig

Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#58. Late afternoon, a package arrives addressed to me. Inside is a picture book and the title is Hansel and Gretel. It is the most beautiful book. It has a golden spine and the pictures are shining with color.
I read the whole book over and over again and then I read it to Greta, who clings to me afterwards.
"It is all right," I say to her. "It is just a story. Things like that don't really happen. - Author: Gemma Liviero
Greta quotes by Gemma Liviero

Greta quotes by Greta Bellamacina
#62. I wasn't interested in drinking beer or vodka or smoking cigarettes or doing all the other things Greta thinks I can't even imagine. I don't want to imagine those things. Anyone can imagine things like that. I want to imagine wrinkled time, and forests thick with wolves, and bleak midnight moors. I dream about people who don't need to have sex to know they love each other. I dream about people who would only ever kiss you on the cheek. - Author: Carol Rifka Brunt
Greta quotes by Carol Rifka Brunt

Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#72. A good song is like a mannequin - its form makes sense, but there's no life. There should be memorable melody, thoughtful lyric, appropriate arrangement. - Author: Greta Salpeter
Greta quotes by Greta Salpeter
#73. Garbo still belongs to that moment in cinema when capturing the human face still plunged audiences into the deepest ecstasy, when one literally lost oneself in a human image as one would in a philtre, when the face represented a kind of absolute state of the flesh, which could be neither reached nor renounced. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#74. My main influences are pop and folk music - Bob Lind, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, the Motown collection, The Zombies, Elliott Smith, and a ton of 70's AM radio hits. I love powerpop too. - Author: Greta Salpeter
Greta quotes by Greta Salpeter
#75. Religion, by its very nature as an untestable belief in undetectable beings and an unknowable afterlife, disables our reality checks. It ends the conversation. It cuts off inquiry: not only factual inquiry, but moral inquiry. Because God's law trumps human law, people who think they're obeying God can easily get cut off from their own moral instincts.
And these moral contortions don't always lie in the realm of theological game-playing. They can have real-world consequences: from genocide to infanticide, from honor killings to abandoned gay children, from burned witches to battered wives to blown-up buildings. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina

Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig

Greta quotes by Carol Rifka Brunt
#78. Your joys and sorrows. You can never tell them. You cheapen the inside of yourself if you do tell them. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#79. I have done everything I can to make sure my daughter knows her father because you form your own identity by rebelling against your parents - but first you have to know them. - Author: Greta Scacchi
Greta quotes by Greta Scacchi
#80. It's so hard for people to give up their cell phones or their ideas of being connected to everything all the time in order to get an immersive experience. That's the best way to make art. It's almost like you have to treat it like you're going into a submarine, and Noah Baumbach totally agrees with that. There's not a real other life that happens outside of the movie while it's being shot, which I like. - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#81. The address given to me by Greta was written in such a way that the words looked like numbers, and the numbers looked like the aftermath of a startled octopus meeting a deep-sea diver in a corner café. It was the worst writing I had ever seen. - Author: Shoeburn Ruffet
Greta quotes by Shoeburn Ruffet
#82. Get some ice on that." "I will." She turned toward the house, steady enough. "You get nauseated or have blurry vision, tell Greta." Abigail started to nod, then checked the motion. He hoped she wouldn't overdo it. He'd known one too many cowboys to take a fall, keep working, then keel over later. "Lie down and take it easy," Wade called. "Yes, Dad," Abigail said saucily. Wade clamped his lips together. Last thing he wanted was Abigail thinking fatherly thoughts of him. Heaven knew, his own weren't going that direction. - Author: Denise Hunter
Greta quotes by Denise Hunter
#83. I will talk to you again in my office, at nine A.M. tomorrow morning, to
give you a more thorough orientation to the school and to explain what I will be expecting of you as a scholarship student." She turned to Greta.
"Greta, please see Caitlyn settled in her room, and see that she showers." With a nod she turned on her heel and left.
Caitlyn raised her arm and sneaked a sniff at her armpit. Was Madame Snowe saying she smelled? She caught Greta watching her and lowered
her arm. "Just checking," she said sheepishly. - Author: Lisa Cach
Greta quotes by Lisa Cach
#84. Life would be so wonderful if we only knew what to do with it. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#85. There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person. They are you, your private joys and sorrows, and you can never tell them. You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo

Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#95. We have not taken to the streets for you to take selfies with us, and tell us that you really admire what we do.
We children are doing this to wake the adults up. We children are doing this for you to put your differences aside and start acting as you would in a crisis. We children are doing this because we want our hopes and dreams back. - Author: Greta Thunberg
Greta quotes by Greta Thunberg
#96. Varney and Tefnakhte looked at Greta. After a moment she sighed, pushed her hair back. 'I don't know why everyone seems to think I'm the one in charge here; we're all equally making this up as we go along.'

'Because you are,' said Tefnakhte mildly. - Author: Vivian Shaw
Greta quotes by Vivian Shaw

Greta quotes by Greta Scacchi
#98. I love you, Taryn," sobbed Greta. "I really do. I should have told you that before." A loud voice overrode the recording. "That is not me." "Greta, it's a video," said Taryn. "We can all see you on it, clear as day." "It's not me," Greta insisted. "Woman, we know what you look like. - Author: Suzanne Wright
Greta quotes by Suzanne Wright
#99. But when I compare the idea that "Yeah, sometimes life sucks, and I have to deal with it as best I can" with the idea that "An immensely powerful being is screwing with me on purpose and won't tell me why" - I, for one, find the first idea much more comforting. I don't have to torture myself with guilt over how I must have angered my god or screwed up my karma, with that guilt piling onto the trauma I'm already going through. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina
#100. I want to come across as a positive person. - Author: Greta Scacchi
Greta quotes by Greta Scacchi
#101. Greta used to say," he said as he played, "that every one of us is born with a song buried deep in our hearts. A song all out own. And our mission in life is to find that song. - Author: Kristen Ciccarelli
Greta quotes by Kristen Ciccarelli
#102. I mean, the actors that I admired were Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift, an actress named Barbara Harris. And Greta Garbo. They were great actors. - Author: Robert De Niro
Greta quotes by Robert De Niro
#103. Belonging to the Catholic Church gives your support to an organization that conceals and protects child rapists. Again, not as a few isolated incidents, but as a massive, institution-wide culture, a matter of policy even, that extends throughout the organization and reaches all the way to the top. Belonging to the Catholic Church - giving them money, letting them count you in their rolls, sending your children to their schools - gives this behavior your personal thumbs-up, and actively enables it to continue. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina

Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#105. I'm a completely worthless woman and no man should risk his life for me. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#106. No candidate dares to look for a new campaign model that could really enhance the democratic process. Instead we are left with the current one which makes our candidates look like hucksters. - Author: Greta Van Susteren
Greta quotes by Greta Van Susteren
#107. A phone beeped quietly and she woke. It was morning. Friday the 30th of April. One day before May 1st, and Greta Dapple's birthday, and the Summer of Light, when the world would tear itself apart. What a cheery, happy thought to wake up to. - Author: Derek Landy
Greta quotes by Derek Landy

Greta quotes by Greta Thunberg
#109. Young activists like Greta Thunberg are fighting for the Earth's survival but what use is this planet if it continues to be nurtured by the blood of the innocent and prosper through others' misfortunes? Save the trees, the oceans and the skies, save the planet but do not forget to save its soul. - Author: Aysha Taryam
Greta quotes by Aysha Taryam
#110. One summer when Carol was attending day camp, Greta had an affair with a man named Mel Carter. He was an Eastern publicity representative for a film studio, and often instructed dinner parties to which we went in those days with accounts of the movies' coming of age. 'We have a picture coming up,' he said once, 'in which a character says "son of a bitch." Lots of exciting things are happening. Still, it's only a beginning. Much remains to be done. - Author: Peter De Vries
Greta quotes by Peter De Vries
#111. 86. I get angry when believers unhesitatingly attribute every good thing in the world to God - and then respond to bad things by saying, "God works in mysterious ways." If God's ways are so mysterious, and we can't begin to understand his thinking behind tsunamis and drought and pediatric cancer, then what makes you think you understand his intentions when it comes to pretty sunsets or cute puppies or helping you find the peanut butter? - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina
#112. Her hair is Harlow gold
Her lips are sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll turn the music on you
You won't have to think twice
She's pure as New York snow
She got Bette Davis eyes
And she'll tease you, she'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious, and she knows just what it
Takes to make a pro blush
She got Greta Garbo's standoff sighs, she's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll let you take her home
It whets her appetite
She'll lay you on the throne
She got Bette Davis eyes
She'll take a tumble on you
Roll you like you were dice
Until you come out blue
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll expose you, when she snows you
Off your feet with the crumbs, she throws you
She's ferocious and she knows just what it
Takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy, she's got Bette Davis eyes
And she'll tease you, she'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious, and she knows just what it
Takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy, she's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll tease you
She'll unease you
Just to please you
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll expose you
When she snows you
She knows you, she's got Bette Davis Eyes - Author: Kim Carnes

Greta quotes by Joan Rivers
#114. We need to care about reality more than we care about what we want to be true about it. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina
#115. Being a movie star, and this applies to all of them, means being looked at from every possible direction. You are never left at peace, you're just fair game. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#116. I had the conviction that lovemaking fools you. The overpowering emotions it induces make you think you're sharing the same feelings as the other person and that they're imagining the same as you. - Author: Greta Scacchi
Greta quotes by Greta Scacchi

Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#119. In an interview with a journalist, you look petty taking the pot shot but in a slick ad you can really do damage - including unfair damage - from afar. It is not that much different than waging a war by a drone than by hand-to-hand combat. - Author: Greta Van Susteren
Greta quotes by Greta Van Susteren
#120. Of course, every time someone does a story on plastic surgery, my name will be dragged up. I've made it safe for other people to have plastic surgery. It's no longer a bad word. - Author: Greta Van Susteren
Greta quotes by Greta Van Susteren
#121. What are you reading?" " 'Ryder' by Greta Maloney," he said, closing the book and placing it back into his rucksack. "Any good?" I asked, wanting to find another subject to talk about other than my nightmare. "It's creepy," he smiled at me. - Author: Tim O'Rourke

Greta quotes by Luise Rainer
#124. There's an economy in sports that I always think is a useful metaphor for acting. You have an objective. You're trying to win, and of course, you want to do well. You want to use good techniques so you enforce it, but also you don't do things you don't have to do. It's very economical, and I think that in acting the most economical way through a scene is always the best. It's active. There is the sense of the fight and you want to win. - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig

Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#126. The day my mother gave us the keys, she also made me and Greta sign a form so that the bank knew our signatures. To get in we had to show our key and sign something so they would know it was really us. I was worried that my signature wouldn't look the same. I wasn't sure when that thing would happen that made it so you always signed your name exactly the same, but it hadn't happened to me yet. So far I'd only had to sign something three times. Once for a code of conduct for the eighth grade field trip to Philadelphia, once for a pact I made with Beans and Frances Wykoski in fifth grade that we'd never have boyfriends until high school. (Of the three of us, I'm the only one who kept that pact.) - Author: Carol Rifka Brunt
Greta quotes by Carol Rifka Brunt
#127. When I did plays in high school and college, I never remember memorizing my lines, but once I had blocking, I had all my lines memorized. Once I had movement associated with words, it was fine. Before I had blocking, it was just text on a page. Once it became embodied, it was much easier. - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#128. I think any break-up from a long relationship has this accompanying feeling of who am I without this person. You feel like a half-person because you've integrated yourself into an idea of a couple for so long, and then teasing that out and finding out who you are without them, it just takes a while. It feels like an amputation. - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#129. I was always sad as a child, for as long as I can think back. I hated crowds of people, and used to sit in a corner by myself, just thinking. - Author: Greta Garbo

#131. Except physically, we know little more about Garbo than we know about Shakespeare. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#132. If the Enchanted Forest were in a movie, they'd always be playing Bob Dylan or Van Morrison or maybe even Leonard Cohen in the background. Greta thought about that a lot. Sometimes when she was taking a shower or helping her mom in the restaurant, she'd imagine what kind of scene it would be and what would be playing to set the mood. - Author: Emma Straub
Greta quotes by Emma Straub
#133. I can say I'm a relationship person, and I like relationships. I think I also like relationships because then you don't have to date because dating is horrible. - Author: Greta Gerwig

#134. Some of us, in the words of the divine Greta Garbo, want to be alone. - Author: Agatha Christie

#135. A great song is the reason you want to jump out of your bed in the morning. - Author: Greta Salpeter
Greta quotes by Greta Salpeter
#136. On London Tonight, on television right now, a reporter is standing in front of a building that is under construction. It's windy, and the wind has pressed the fabric of his slacks against his body, outlining his penis. You can see everything - the length and width and the fact that he's uncut and hangs to the right. But I bet none of the viewers even noticed. In America, there would be letters to the station. There would be a lawsuit because a child was watching. The headlines would dub the reporter "Anchor of Shame" and he'd be fired. When our own Greta Van Susteren got her eyes done, it was front-page news for a week. So you can be sure, if Anderson Cooper's penis were to be visible in outline beneath his trousers, he'd be on the cover of People, Vanity Fair, and The New York Times. We are obsessed with sex in an unnatural way. - Author: Augusten Burroughs
Greta quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#137. It's difficult in Hollywood to be allowed to try anything. It's all a terrible compromise. There is no time for art. All that matters is what they call box office. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#138. I was delighted to hear that a number of people returned to see Orphée (as much as five or six times), to the amazement of the managements. This is significant, for the cinema is usually regarded as a place where one drops in for a little entertainment as one would for a glass of beer.
This is why film societies, those Courts of Appeal, have so important a part to play, and why they deserve all the support we can give them. This is why I accepted nomination as President of the fédération des Cinéclubs. But, alas, even film societies are sometimes unable to retrieve old films, which the industrial squall sweeps away in order to clear a space for new ones. We had imagined that great actresses like Greta Garbo would be granted the privilege which was denied to a Rachel or a Sarah Bernhardt. But we were wrong. Today it is impossible to show Garbo in The lady of the Camelias for instance, to the young people who could not see the film when it came out, for all the copies have been meticulously destroyed. The lady of the Camelias is to be remade with new stars and new methods, using all the latest technical inventions, colour, three dimensions, and what not. It is a real disaster. Mrs B., the head of the new York Film Library, finds herself confronted with the same difficulties as Langlois of the Cinémathèque française whenever she endeavours to save a film from oblivion. She finds that she cannot obtain a single copy. Chaplin alone escapes that terrible destruction, because h - Author: Jean Cocteau

#140. Gimme a visky with a ginger ale on the side - and don't be stinchy, beby. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#141. And I am sorry, but saying everything will be all right while continuing doing nothing at all is just not hopeful to us. In fact, it's the opposite of hope. And yet this is exactly what you keep doing. You can't just sit around waiting for hope to come - you're acting like spoiled, irresponsible children. You don't seem to understand that hope is something you have to earn. And if you still say that we are wasting valuable lesson time, then let me remind you that our political leaders have wasted decades through denial and inaction. And since our time is running out we have decided to take action. We have started to clean up your mess and we will not stop until we are done. - Author: Greta Thunberg
Greta quotes by Greta Thunberg
#142. My father was absent and he was a hero to me. - Author: Greta Scacchi
Greta quotes by Greta Scacchi
#143. Noah Baumbach does more takes than any director I've ever worked with. He runs a very quiet set and he runs a very hard working set. He has such an intense level of dedication to what's happening that he cultivates a group of people around him who have an equal level of dedication. Nobody asks, "When is lunch?" That's just not part of our sets. It's complete immersion. He has a 'no cell phone' rule. Nobody checks their cell phone. Nobody reads on set. It's like, "If you're there, you're there. If you're not on board with that, don't work on this movie." - Author: Greta Gerwig
Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#144. If you are blessed, you are blessed, whether you are married or single. - Author: Greta Garbo
Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#145. If we consider Satan as symbol, representative of the primal motivating force of Death, Destroyer of Worlds, the antecedent of the Lion that purportedly will come to judge us, do you suppose such a one would require conviction of any kind? I think not. I think that power, dispassion, and disinterest would suffice. I myself concede I would not make a plausible Whore of Babylon. One suspects that history demands something a little more grand, a whore with curls and lipgloss. I certainly have the dispassion and disinterest for the job. As to power? Well, we shall see. I believe very strongly in God, and I most look forward to meeting him. Power. Yes. Power would be helpful, indeed, for that meeting. - Author: Greta Elisabeta Westford
Greta quotes by Greta Elisabeta Westford

#147. The human mind's capacity to persuade itself of things it wants to believe is damn near limitless. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina
#148. Whatever. There is a natural order to things, a hierarchy. And no less so in man. For man may be the master of nature, but he is also part of it. Every living thing, from the greatest of all men to the lowliest earthworm has its place. It is very important that the groundhog not think he is tiger, nor a sparrow believe he is a hawk. A frog would not make a very good shark, would it? One must know their place in the world" ~ Baroness von Berge, Greta Greaves of Austria - Author: Austin Scott Collins

#152. Cameras in court are just messengers; don't blame them, blame the participants. - Author: Greta Van Susteren
Greta quotes by Greta Van Susteren
#153. It's that thing when you're with someone, and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it... but it's a party... and you're both talking to other people, and you're laughing and shining... and you look across the room and catch each other's eyes... but - but not because you're possessive, or it's precisely sexual... but because... that is your person in this life. And it's funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it's this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It's sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don't have the ability to perceive them. That's - That's what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess. - Author: Greta Gerwig

#156. I'm not someone who's an immigrant who's struggling in that way, but between New York and L.A., I had someone tell me very early on, "If you're going to be broke anywhere, it's better to be broke in L.A. At least the weather is nice." I was like, "You're right." I didn't take them up on that. - Author: Greta Gerwig

Greta quotes by Lee Remick
#161. I love just seeing shots of New York inside of a fictional movie that are not controlled. I do not like shots with extras, I have to say. I don't mind extras in other scenes, but I love New York City streets just as they look. I don't even care if someone looks at the camera. It doesn't bother me. - Author: Greta Gerwig

#169. Let's say that Person 1 thinks their hair dryer is telling them to shoot every redhead who gets on the 9:04 train. And let's say Person 2 thinks their hair dryer is telling them to volunteer twice a week at a homeless shelter.
Is it better to volunteer at a homeless shelter than it is to shoot every redhead who gets on the 9:04 train? Of course it is.
But you still have a basic problem - which is that you think your hair dryer is talking to you. - Author: Greta Christina
Greta quotes by Greta Christina
#170. I was a ballet dancer. I did other kinds of dance but ballet was my great love. But then it became clear, when I was 12, that my body wasn't going to be right. That's always a heartbreaking moment because there's nothing you can do about that. Your body is just not right. You don't have enough turnout. You're not built properly. - Author: Greta Gerwig

Greta quotes by Greta Gerwig
#177. Greta is great, but he's a little ... extremely ... moody. Take my birthday last year. At the stroke of midnight, he appeared at my door.
"I wrote this poem for you," he said, shoving a piece of crumpled paper into my hands.
'The world must burn.
Lava exploding into faces.
Their skeletons are screaming now.
No survivors.

"Oh ... uh ... wow ... " I began.
"Don't bother thanking me," he said. "I just wanted to comfort you for being one year closer to the grave. Of course, I failed miserably, because comfort doesn't exist in this universe. - Author: Bratniss Everclean
Greta quotes by Bratniss Everclean
#178. It was a nice thing for her to say. In her way. With Greta you have to look out for the nice things buried in the rest of her mean stuff. Greta's talk is like a geode. Ugly as anything on the outside and for the most part the same on the inside, but every once in a while there's something that shines through. - Author: Carol Rifka Brunt

Greta quotes by Greta Garbo
#182. Eric: But you already know...

Greta: Well, yeah, but I still want us to have The Talk. All daughters get to have The Talk.

Eric: Fine. You remember the book "If you give a Mouse a Cookie"?

Greta: Ye-es.

Eric: It's like that.

Greta: No it isn't.

Eric: No. It absolutely is...

Eric: If you give a boy a kiss, he'll want to touch your cookies. If you let him touch your cookies, he'll want to unwrap them. If you let him unwrap them, he'll want to put them in his mouth. And THEN, if you let him put them in his mouth, the boy will want to pet your kitty. But if you let him pet your kitty, he'll want to see your kitty. And of course, if you let him see your kitty, then he'll want to feed it. And if you let him kiss you, touch your cookies, unwrap your cookies, put them in his mouth, pet your kitty, see your kitty, and feed your kitty, you'll get pregnant unless you make him wear a raincoat on his banana. So it's better if you just kick the boy in the nuts and run over him with the car.

Greta: I don't think that's how The Talk usually goes.

Eric: No?

Greta: No, but it's okay, Dad. I like your version, too. - Author: J.F. Lewis
