She always knew how to wear a hat...
"For an actress to be a success, she must have the face of a Venus, the brains of a Minerva, the grace of Terpsichore, the memory of a MaCaulay, the figure of Juno, and the hide of a rhinoceros."
"You grow up the day you have the first real laugh at yourself."
On audiences: "I never let them cough. They wouldn't dare."
Ethel Barrymore (15th August 1879 – 18th June 1959)
