  • ... you can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an inner exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.

  • ... be careful what you want, for you will get it.

  • ... no one has a closest friend in Hollywood ...

  • I have learned that part of the formula for success is to keep quiet about your objective until you get it. Just as the universe is filled with positive energy waiting to join your own, there is also destructive energy emanating from people who do not like you.

  • You never put off until tomorrow or even this afternoon what you can do this morning. Attack the objective when your desire is strongest.

  • ... I sometimes mistake my typewriter for my teeth, because the more I bite the more my column will be read.

  • Food, sex, and liquor create their own appetite.

  • Food is the most primitive form of comfort.

  • Women without men are usually nervous. ... The important thing is to have a man, even if you just like him. Pleasing him, you will please yourself.

  • [On Ronald Reagan:] I have a strange feeling that he will wake up one day and ask, 'What movie am I in?'
