Born Friday 27 December 1901, died Wednesday 6 May 1992
The tears I have cried over Germany have dried. I have washed my face.
America took me into her bosom when there was no longer a country worthy of the name, but in my heart I am German - German in my soul.
There's something about an American soldier you can't explain. They're so grateful for anything, even a film actress coming to see them.
When you're dead, you're dead. That's it.
The Germans and I no longer speak the same language.
If there is a supreme being, he's crazy.
I never enjoyed working in a film.
I am not a myth.
Courage and grace are a formidable mixture. The only place to see it is in the bullring.
They want you to bring out your intestines.
Grumbling is the death of love.
How do you know love is gone? If you said that you would be there at seven and you get there by nine, and he or she has not called the police yet - it's gone.
Sex. In America an obsession. In other parts of the world a fact.
Without tenderness, a man is uninteresting.
There is a gigantic difference between earning a great deal of money and being rich.
I'm worth more dead than alive. Don't cry for me after I'm gone; cry for me now.
The weak are more likely to make the strong weak than the strong are likely to make the weak strong.
I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men.
Glamour is what I sell, it's my stock in trade.
I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.
