Yesterday, my last “official” day working at the senior center, I was doing some research on Greta Garbo. I was trying to write a blurb for an event I had booked where an archivist will come in and do a slide show on the actress. That’s how I came across this wonderful website about divas —

My favorite feature is the list of quotes from all the divas. Here are some of the highlights:

“With the newspaper strike on, I wouldn’t consider dying.” — Bette Davis

“Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.” — Sophia Loren

“I am simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy, and driven.” — Barbra Streisand

“I married a German. Every night I dress up as Poland and he invades me.” — Bette Midler

“I don’t want to be a silly temptress. I cannot see any sense in getting dressed up and doing nothing but tempting men in pictures.” — Greta Garbo

And, my personal favorite:

“If I had my life to live over again, I’d live it the same way. The truth is, honey, I’ve enjoyed my life. I’ve had a hell of a good time … ” — Ava Gardner
