Quotes

List of Claudette Colbert quotes.

Most of us don't know about happiness until it's over.


I've always believed that acting is instinct to start with; you either have it or you don't.


Audiences always sound like they're glad to see me, and I'm damned glad to see them. If they want you, you want to do it.
