Zsa Zsa Gabor in her own words
(BBC) – Zsa Zsa Gabor, famed for her nine marriages and her way with words, has died at the age of 99.
Here are some of her most memorable comments:
“Husbands are like fires. They go out when unattended.”
“A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he’s finished.
On former husband George Sanders: “We were both in love with him. I fell out of love with him but he didn’t.”
“I never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back.”
“When I’m alone, I can sleep crossways in bed without an argument.”
“Never despise what it says in the women’s magazines – it may not be subtle but neither are men.”
“To be loved is a strength. To love is a weakness.”
“I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house.”
“Macho does not prove mucho.”
“Getting divorced just because you don’t love a man is almost as silly as getting married just because you do.”
“I don’t remember anybody’s name. Why do you think the ‘darling’ thing started?”
