Romy Schneider's quotes

  • Sissi sticks to me just like oatmeal.
  • Life must go on. My work gives me strength.
  • [Alain Delon] Delon? Nothing is colder than a love that has passed away.
  • Memories are the best things in life, I think.
  • You must not quote to me what I once said. I am wiser now.
  • I've worked with the biggest tyrants: [Otto Preminger] Preminger, [Orson Welles] Welles, [Luchino Visconti] Visconti. Despots - they have contempt for most actors. When they meet someone who stands up to them, everything's great.
  • I am nothing in life, but everything on the screen.
  • I cannot live without having a role to work.
  • I wish to present myself in front of the camera, each time under the features of a different woman, I would like to live and apprehend the problems, the conflicts, the feelings and the impulses of women radically different from me.
  • I am not afraid of nothing in the world. Except ego.
  • I want to learn, I want to develop, I want to discover all that is in me.
  • [In a letter to her friend Simone Signoret] I don't know anything about life, but everything about cinema.
  • [1970 interview] The Things of Life (1970) is the best film I've done; there's The Trial (1962), there's Boccaccio '70 (1962) with Luchino Visconti, there's The Cardinal (1963) with Preminger - I've had the chance to work with some great directors.
  • You can't always make The Things of Life (1970); you can't always make Max and the Junkmen (1971) - you make concessions.
  • [accepting her Best Actress César for A Simple Story (1978)] Thank you. I'd like to share this César with my friend Claude Sautet and Jean-Loup Dabadie. We'll cut it into three!
  • I have the feeling that I was born in Vienna in order to live in Paris. I want to be completely French in the way I live, love, sleep and dress.
  • [on That Most Important Thing: Love (1975)] There's three quarters of this character completely separate from me and one quarter close to me.
