Mae West Quotes
Image via[/caption%5D

As a Comedian by night and an Everyday Starlet all the time, Mae West is truly inspirational to me.  She is the embodiment of a Starlet and Comedian in one.  Her humor was so ahead of its time.  Any man who claims women aren’t funny (I can’t believe people still think that) should take a look at Ms. West’s Body…of work (wink, wink).

This Sunday would have been Mae West’s birthday, so in tribute I thought I would share my favorite quotes…

 “Why don’t you come on up and see me sometime — when I’ve got nothin’ on but the radio.”

“No gold-digging for me… I take diamonds! We may be off the gold standard someday.”

“(Goodness, what lovely diamonds.) Goodness had nothing to do with it, dearie.”

“Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.”

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”

“When I’m good, I’m very good, but when I’m bad, I’m better. ”

“I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure.”

“It’s not the men in your life that matters, it’s the life in your men.”

“I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.”

“It is better to be looked over than overlooked.”

“I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.”

“Women like a man with a past, but they prefer a man with a present.”

“Love thy neighbor — and if he happens to be tall, debonair and devastating, it will be that much easier.”

Happy Birthday Mae West!

    I’m a big Mae West fan, and I’m forever grateful for the shining example Mae set as a fun, fearless, and talented female. I was a baby when Mae died, but her work has made a huge impact on my life that will last forever, & she still inspires me today.
