1 [on presenting an Oscar at the 1967 Academy Awards] What a thrill for me to fondle an envelope, even in transit!
2 My mother said to me, "You're revolting. And on top of that, you're not very feminine." Well, that led me to the stage, which is an accepting and comfortable place. So in a way I have my mother to thank.
3 I'm terribly shy, but of course no one believes me. Come to think of it, neither would I.
