“Nobody onscreen fascinates me as much as Paulette Goddard. I’m probably her greatest fan , bar none. I see my own pictures six or seven times. I also take in my own pictures to see what I do wrong or what I do right.” ~ Paulette Goddard

“I think everybody at the studio thought I had a boy friend who owned a garage because I used to go to work every morning in such big cars. Actually, you see, I was financially independent, and my passion was automobiles. I had three of them, all shiny and expensive.” ~ Paulette Goddard

“You live in the present and you eliminate things that don’t matter. You don’t carry the burden of the past. I’m not impressed by the past very much. The past bores me, to tell you the truth, it really bores me. I don’t remember many movies and certainly not my own.” ~ Paulette Goddard
