Irene Mayer Selznick

  • Four people, four lives that boiled down to one life and that was my father's. What occupied him was what occupied us.

  • As we went out the door, instead of saying, 'Have a good time,' Mother would say, 'Have poise!' as though it were optional.

  • ... I'd like to grow very old as slowly as possible.

Irene Mayer Selznick, U.S. stage/theatrical producer

(1907 - 1990)
