Gertrude Lawrence

  • In London I have been by turns poor and rich, hopeful and despondent, successful and down and out, utterly miserable and ecstatically, dizzily happy. I belong to London as each of us can belong to only one place on this earth. And, in the same way, London belongs to me.

  • Very few among us are noble, or even mature, in all parts of our nature at the same time.

  • If my own experience had taught me anything, it was that, if a thing had to be done, it could be done.

  • 'So this is America!' I exclaimed. 'Look at that bath, will you? Feel that delicious warmth. Central heating, my girl. No wonder they call this the most luxurious country on earth.'

  • Everything that has value has its price. Nothing worth having is ever handed to you gratis.

Gertrude Lawrence, English actor, singer, dancer, musical comedy performer

(1898 - 1952)

Full name: Gertrud Alexandra Dagmar Lawrence Klasen.
