|The thing about happiness is that it doesn't
help you to grow; only unhappiness does that. So I'm grateful
that my bed of roses was made up equally of blossoms and thorns.
I've had a privileged, creative, exciting life, and I think
that the parts that were less joyous were preparing me, testing
me, strengthening me.
Trash is something you get rid of - or disease. I'm not something
you get rid of.
At what age does a lady become a legend? For me it was fifty-four.
A successful man is one who makes more money than a wife can
spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
I find men terribly exciting, and any girl who says she doesn't
is an anemic old maid, a streetwalker, or a saint.
I planned on having one husband and seven children, but it turned
out the other way around.
I liked the boys and the boys liked me.
A gentleman is simply a patient wolf.
It's said in Hollywood that you should always forgive your enemies
- because you never know when you'll have to work with them.
The truth is, sex doesn't mean that much to me now. It never
did, really. It was romance I wanted, kisses and candlelight,
that sort of thing. I never did dig sex very much.
All those years that my image on the screen was sex goddess
- well that makes me laugh. Sex was never important to me. I'm
sorry if that disappoints you, but it's true. Romance, yes.
Romance was very important. But I never liked being rushed into
bed, and I never allowed it. I'd put it off as long as I could
and I gave in only when I was in love, or thought I was. It
was always the courtship, the cuddling, and the closeness that
I cared about, never the act of sex itself-with some exceptions
of course. I'm not masquerading as a prude , but I've always
been portrayed as a sexy woman, and that's wrong. Sensuous,
yes. When I'm involved with someone I care for deeply, I can
feel sensual. But that's a private matter.
I've always loved a challenge.
My life has been a series of emergencies.
I would rather lose a good earring than be caught without make-up.
Humor has been the balm of my life, but it's been reserved for
those close to me, not part of the public Lana.

On sex with first husband Artie Shaw
I'm so gullible. I'm so damn gullible. And I am so sick of me
How long I had been asleep I don't know, but suddenly I was
sitting up straight in the darkness. Before me was a vision
so intense that it seemed to be alive. I saw a huge medallion
of shining gold, and on it was embossed the face of God, a shimmering
countenance, comforting, benign. A voice said, Your father is
dead. I was filled with awe but also with a strange sense of
peace as I closed my eyes and went back to sleep.
On death of her father
When I awoke in the morning, my mother and Julia Hislop were
whispering in a corner. They didn't have to tell me why. I already
knew that my father was dead. And when the feeling of peace
wore off, the surprise at having known intensified my sense
of loss and sorrow. Although I was only nine, I could imagine
