I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line.
People either have comedy or they don't. You can't teach it to them.

Women's Lib? Oh, I'm afraid it doesn't interest me one bit. I've been so liberated it hurts.
I'm not funny. What I am is brave.
I wanted to get out of the pictures and stay home so that I could have children.
How to do half-hour comedy innovatively is something I do pride myself on. We invented it with 'I Love Lucy.'
I've seen 'Mork & Mindy' a couple times. Robin Williams amazes me. And I love Gary Coleman. He puts me away. He puts everybody away.
I dyed my hair this crazy red to bid for attention. It has become a trademark, and I've got to keep it this way.
How I Love Lucy was born? We decided that instead of divorce lawyers profiting from our mistakes, we'd profit from them.
Use a make-up table with everything close at hand and don't rush; otherwise you'll look like a patchwork quilt.
You spell Bob Hope C-L-A-S-S.
TV started for me just as a means of keeping my husband Desi off the road. He'd been on tour with his band since he got out of the Army, and we were in our 11th year of marriage and wanted to have children.
I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
I'm sometimes scared of everything that has happened to us. We didn't think Desilu Productions would grow so big. We merely wanted to be together and have two children.
I regret the passing of the studio system. I was very appreciative of it because I had no talent.
I will never do another TV series. It couldn't top I Love Lucy, and I'd be foolish to try. In this business, you have to know when to get off.
I don't know how to tell a joke. I never tell jokes. I can tell stories that happened to me... anecdotes. But never a joke.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ability is of little account without opportunity.
I hate failure and that divorce was a Number One failure in my eyes. It was the worst period of my life. Neither Desi nor I have been the same since, physically or mentally.
I am a real ham. I love an audience. I work better with an audience. I am dead, in fact, without one.
If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do.
Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work - and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.
A man who correctly guesses a woman's age may be smart, but he's not very bright.
In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.
The more things you do, the more you can do.
I'm not sure that I want to be without some lack of confidence. If you are too sure of yourself, you don't grow. You may feel confident in some things, but other fields come up as a challenge. And if you don't anticipate trouble, you will be in trouble.
I don't think you should write a book until you tell the absolute truth. You can't do that until you're 85, and I don't want to live that long. I've always prided myself on knowing when to get off, and I hope it works out that way.
