"I am just too much"

"Acting should be bigger than life. Scripts should be bigger than life. It should all be bigger than life."

"An affair now and then is good for a marriage. It adds spice, stops it from getting boring... I ought to know."

"When a man gives his opinion he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion she's a bitch."

"Why am I so good at playing bitches? I think it's because I'm not a bitch. Maybe that's why Miss Crawford always plays ladies."

"Everybody has a heart. Except some people."

"In this business, until you're known as a monster you're not a star."

"Old age is no place for sissies."

"That's me: an old kazoo with some sparklers."

"I am just too much."

Ruth Elizabeth "Bette" Davis (April 5, 1908 – October 6, 1989)
