List of Mary Pickford quotes.

I played scrubwomen and secretaries and women of all nationalities... I decided that if I could get into as many pictures as possible, I'd become known, and there would be a demand for my work.


Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.


If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.
