Quotable Quotes:

"It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed."

"In bad times and in good, I've never lost my sense of zest for life. "

"Continuous efforts - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. "

"There is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure."

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."

"Yes, Howard Hughes invented a bra for me. Or, he tried to. And one of the seamless ones like they have now. He was way ahead of his time. But I never wore it in The Outlaw (1943). And he never knew. He wasn't going to take my clothes off to check if I had it on. I just told him I did." (IMDB)

"It's been suggested that if the super-naturalists really had the powers they claim, they'd win the lottery every week."
