“To a smart girl men are no problem — they’re the answer.”
“To be loved is a strength. To love is a weakness.”
“I believe in large families: Every woman should have at least three husbands.”
“The women’s movement hasn’t changed my sex life. It wouldn’t dare.”
“I love to put on diamonds and beautiful evening gowns and make my girlfriends upset.”
“One of my theories is that men love with their eyes; women love with their ears.”
