Bette Midler's quotes

  • I try not to drink too much, because when I'm drunk, I bite.
  • [on acting] You have to think you're the greatest thing since sliced bread, but know you're not.
  • [2005, during a concert in Brisbane, Australia] It's been 26 years since I was last here. Before my fans were all taking drugs; this time they're all taking medication!
  • The worst part of success is to try finding someone who is happy for you.
  • I always try to balance the light with the heavy - a few tears of human spirit in with the sequins and the fringes.
  • I bear no grudges. I have a mind that retains nothing.
  • Get the trash off the street and back on the stage where it belongs.
  • In Hawaii, I was the chief chunker in a pineapple canning factory. I used to come home smelling like a compote.
  • Underneath all this drag, I'm really a librarian, you know.
  • I wouldn't say I invented tack, but I definitely brought it to its present high popularity.
  • Thank God for the gays. I don't know what would have happened but I know what did happen. Good for them and good for me.
  • I've never been to a sex orgy in my entire life. Studio 54 was way worse than the baths.
  • I'm glad my daughter has been [university educated]. I sometimes think I should go back to school to learn French and music, but who would have me?
  • I thought I would be an actorrrr. I thought I'd be Ethel Barrymore. I didn't know who she was, but she was my idea of an actorrrr. It seemed it would be more fun to be someone else rather than myself.
  • On desire: If somebody makes me laugh, I'm his slave for life.
  • I'm not just vain, I'm ignorant. I'm vignorant!
  • I celebrate everyone's religious holidays. if it's good enough for the righteous, it's good enough for the self-righteous, I always say.
  • [Accusing Lady Gaga of stealing her Dolores DeLago routine] I've been doing singing mermaid since 1980. You can keep the meat dress and the firecracker boobs. Mermaid's mine.
  • As Joan Crawford once said, "I'll show ya a pair of Golden Globes!".
  • [on Susan Boyle] She is an act whose time has come. People love that voice. She sings straight. She doesn't do a lot of riffing. There are no trills, no thrills. Its straight singing and it comes from the heart.
  • [on Sue Mengers who she played on Broadway] Sue even had a friend blowing marijuana smoke into her face as she passed away. She was high until the bitter end.
  • I'm incapable of doing anything other than entertaining. I can barely add and I've never been able to do my own taxes. It's a good thing I've been blessed with this fantastic will to go forward, even when I hit the skids.
  • When I first heard "Wind Beneath My Wings", I thought: "I'm not singing that." [Longtime friend and producer] Marc Shaiman insisted and it was the biggest hit of my career.
  • Charm is something a lot of today's young artists could do with. Maybe I'll start a charm school, like they had at Motown. They don't see it takes more than looking cute and not falling over in high heels.
  • My father loved me, but until the day he died he thought it was a total waste of time and that I should have been a teacher or a nurse.
  • Fame and money was partly what drove me to leave Hawaii for New York to become a singer when I was 19. When you are poor - and we were really poor - it's human nature to want to better yourself.
  • [on Beaches (1988)] No one was more surprised than me at how it took off and has such a place in the hearts of so many generations.
  • The glass ceiling still exists. It's getting a little better for women, but past a certain age, certainly not.
  • If you wants something done, you'd better do it yourself - or ask another woman to do it.
  • [observation, 2015] Don't I look fabulous? I'm a triumph of science and fiction.
  • Jerry Lewis, a complicated soul who made the whole world laugh has died
  • Where's Rand Paul's neighbor when we need him?
  • Climate change is real. It's actually the most important story of the age. I think about it every day. I worry about the oceans and the fact that there's so much plastic now and people are so wasteful. That's a terrible sin to me.
  • [on Marvel movies] They're unbearably loud. They make such a racket. They don't really have any decent dialogue. And there's a lot of explosions.
  • I don't think there's anything wrong with being a housewife. I think all work is honorable. Being a mother is fantastic. But if you have a passion for something and a talent for something, you should be able to follow your bliss.
  • Now that I Am Cait has been cancelled, will she go back to being Bruce? Will Kris take him back? Do I smell a re-wedding?!
