Penny Marshall's quotes

  • You had to learn at a certain age what sarcasm is, you know?
  • If you're not having a good time, find something else that gives you some joy in life.
  • My brother and sister were much older. They were planned. I was not planned for. I was called the mistake, amongst other things.
  • I don't mind if somebody texts me but I'm not a big texter, the things are too small. I don't mind if they text, '7 o'clock', that's fine, that's logistics but, 'What's up?' Get real! Pick up a phone!
  • I do feel it's important to entertain people. I try to.
  • I don't know one lens from another. That's not my job. It's the cinematographer's job. But I can talk to people.
  • I don't startle easily.
  • I have season tickets to the Lakers and the Clippers.
  • I tell stories so only the independents do that and they don't pay you that much. I'd rather do television or an HBO movie.
  • I've directed seven movies and know a thing or two about dealing with unexpected crises.
  • My family is well, and that's what's important.
  • In my opinion, life is more important than show business.
  • Movie stars are insecure like everyone else. That's why they go into acting!

  • I want you to laugh and cry. That's what I do.
  • I wish I could sing better.
  • I would much rather feel comfortable and feel beautiful, than to feel uncomfortable, but look fantastic.
  • I'll try anything. What are they gonna do, kick me out of show business?
  • I'm not a hockey fan. I'm not a golf fan.
  • I live in L.A., so I go to basketball games. But I love baseball.
  • I think everyone's mother is slightly nuts.
  • I'm not the most positive person.
  • We all used to collect baseball cards that came with bubble gum. You could never get the smell of gum off your cards, but you kept your Yankees cards pristine.
  • I do talk like a truck driver sometimes, or I curse. What can I say?
  • I wasn't like a girly girl. I was a tomboy.
  • I have a grandson who is 20. He's a computer guy. I'm worried that he can't communicate without his machine. They have no personal contact with people. That's the bad part of technology.
  • Yankee Stadium was the only thing we had in the Bronx. It was an institution.
  • I have a good support system of friends and family.
  • I like arts and crafts.
  • Once I commit to something, I complete it. If I say 'no', I mean 'no'. I just have to learn how to say 'no' more.
  • The truth is that I am not a frump... I just enjoy being laid back.
  • My mother was pretty nuts, but she was also a character.
  • People who text a lot are not my favorite thing.
  • When I'm working, I'm obsessively working.
  • It's better for me to go up against someone's passion with my passion and then clarifying something that he wrote. Then I know how to work around certain things.
  • Look at YouTube, how many talented people there are. It's a whole new world of how to express yourself. I don't know how to work that world, but take advantage of it.
  • I'm not someone who has had to deal with much personal drama outside of the usual: growing up with parents who hated each other, two marriages and divorces of my own. There was the cancer thing, too.
  • You need to see what the actor needs. This one wants to be talked to privately. That one doesn't mind if you block it for them. Just tell me the truth and I'll adapt to it.
