    Bette Davis Quotes

    American movie actress

    Quotes by Bette Davis

    • Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone - but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding.
    • This became a credo of mine...attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.
    • I am doomed to an eternity of compulsive work. No set goal achieved satisfies. Success only breeds a new goal. The golden apple devoured has seeds. It is endless.
      The Lonely Life, 1962
    • I do not regret one professional enemy I have made. Any actor who doesn't dare to make an enemy should get out of the business.
      The Lonely Life, 1962
    • I was thought to be 'stuck up.' I wasn't. I was just sure of myself. This is and always has been an unforgivable quality to the unsure.
      The Lonely Life, 1962
    • It has been my experience that one cannot, in any shape or form, depend on human relations for lasting reward. It is only work that truly satisfies.
      The Lonely Life, 1962
    • My passions were all gathered together like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today; I knew it then as purpose.
      The Lonely Life, 1962
    • There are new words now that excuse everybody. Give me the good old days of heroes and villains. the people you can bravo or hiss. There was a truth to them that all the slick credulity of today cannot touch.
      The Lonely Life, 1962
    • To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy. As everyone else, I love to dunk my crust in it. But alone, it is not a diet designed to keep body and soul together.
