Quotable Quotes:

"[1991, on her return to the musical "A Little Night Music"] I've been doing songs from the show off and on through the years. So I've never really been away. Even a few months ago, I was singing "Send in the Clowns" for a charity performance. But my doctors were advising that I not work for a couple of months -- that I needed to relax, take it easy, do physiotherapy for my dental problems. More specifically, I had to make the decision about whether I wanted to come back playing another role: to hear somebody else eight performances a week, doing something that I was used to doing. You know, "Clowns" was written for me." (IMDB)

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking."

"Glynis Johns life was full of meaning and adventure. She was an amazing person with many merits. She will be deeply missed. (V)"
