Carole Lombard's quotes

  • I've lived by a man's code designed to fit a man's world, yet at the same time, I never forget that a woman's first job is to choose the right shade of lipstick.
  • [on why she would not work with Orson Welles] I can't win working with Welles. If the picture's a huge hit, he'll get the credit and, if it's a flop, I'll be blamed.
  • [William Powell] is the only intelligent actor I've ever met.
  • I know it's a sweet deal, but the story stinks... I don't care if it is the studio's money, I don't like it.
  • [speaking at an Indianapolis war-bond rally, January 15, 1942] At first thought, we might say, "Our job is to win a war"... but I am sure it would be closer to the hearts of all of us to say, "We are fighting a war to assure peace... our kind of peace.".
  • [her last words to the public before leaving on a fund-raising flight for the war effort, January 15, 1942] Before I say goodbye to you all, come on - join me in a big cheer - "V for Victory!".
  • Personally, I resent being tagged "glamour girl". It's such an absurd, extravagant label. It implies so much that I'm not.
  • I can't imagine a duller fate than being the best-dressed woman in reality. When I want to do something, I don't pause to contemplate whether I'm exquisitely gowned. I want to live, not pose!
  • A woman has just as much right in this world as a man and can get along in it just as well if she puts her mind to it.
