Quote of the Day, 1/15/07: Cary Grant

Okay, back on the quote bus now. Today's quotes are from the man himself. Mr. Cary Grant.

I suddenly found my articulate self in a dazzling land of smiling, jostling people wearing and not wearing all sorts of costumes and doing all sorts of clever things. And that's when I knew! What other life could there be but that of an actor?
...

Do your job and demand your compensation -- but in that order.
...

Everyone wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant.
...

I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be until finally I became that person. Or he became me.

Yes, I was going to mention that the third picture I posted of Cary Grant is the one that makes my heart flutter.

I love the part where he says, even I want to be Cary Grant. Now that's wonderful.

A reporter once asked him, "Who is Cary Grant? He replied: "When you find out, tell me."

A reporter in search of information wired Grant's agent: "HOW OLD CARY GRANT?" Grant happened to read the message himself, and wired back: "OLD CARY GRANT FINE. HOW YOU?"

"I have spent the greater part of my life fluctuating between Archie Leach and Cary Grant, unsure of each, suspecting each."

"I improve on misquotation."

"My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can."

"Mostly, we have manufactured ladies -- with the exception of Ingrid, Grace, Deborah and Audrey."

"It takes 500 small details to add up to one favorable impression."
