Quotable Quotes:

"I resent the limitations of my own imagination. "

"I learned a long time ago that worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere."

"[on David Janssen, with whom she worked on three episodes of The Fugitive (1963)] I loved him. He was so sweet. I felt sorry for him toward the end. Now they have several people as leads in a show, they have these huge casts, but David was that show. He had those long, long, long hours, and a role where he was always doing physical things." (IMDB)

"Shirley Knight lived a brilliant and impactful life, leaving an indelible mark on the entertainment industry, and her spirit and legacy will continue to inspire for generations to come. (V)"
