Did anyone ever tell you that you look like a prince out of the
Arabian Nights?

He’s like an animal. He has animal’s habits. There’s even something subhuman about him.


I am NOT a Pollack! People from Poland are Poles. They are not Pollacks. But what I am is one hundred percent American. I’m born and raised in the greatest country on this earth and I’m proud of it. And don’t you ever call me a Pollack.

I don’t want real…I want magic!

I know I fib a good deal. After all, a woman’s charm is 50% illusion!

I like the dark. The dark is comforting to me.

I lived in a house where dying women remembered their dead men. Regrets, recriminations. If you’d done this it wouldn’t have cost me that. And other things, such as blood stained pillow slips. I used to sit here and she used to sit there and death was as close as you are. Death…the opposite is desire. So how could you wonder? How could you possibler wonder?

I never met a woman that didn’t know if she was good-looking or not without being told, and some of them give themselves credit for more than they’ve got.

Wasn’t it all okay till she showed here? And wasn’t we happy together? Wasn’t it all OK ’till she showed here, hoity-toity, describin’ me like a’ ape ???

Oh look, we have created enchantment!

Physical beauty is passing – a transitory possession – but beauty of the mind, richness of the spirit, tenderness of the heart – I have all these things – aren’t taken away but grow! Increase with the years!

Say hello to ma lil friend


We’ve had this date from the beginning.

What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart,oh,no,it’s curved like a road through mountains.

Whoever you are – I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.

You come in here and you sprinkle the place with powder and you spray perfume and you stick a paper lantern over the light bulb – and, lo and behold, the place has turned to Egypt and you are the Queen of the Nile, sitting on your throne, swilling down my liquor. And do you know what I say? HA HA! Do you hear me? HA HA HA!!!
