My grandmother, not surprisingly, loved Mae West. (She enjoyed that crass, bawdy humor). In honor of this great woman, I've compiled some of Mae West's amusing well known and not so well known quotes. My grandmother often quoted them to me.
"The curve is more powerful than the sword."
"A girl in a convertible is worth 5 in the phone book."
"Give a man a free hand, and he'll run it all over you."
"Any time you've got nothing to do, and lots of time to do it, come on up."
"When I'm good I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better."
"Why don't you come up sometime, and see me?"
"A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up."
"To err is human, but it feels divine."
"A man in the house is worth two in the street."
"I believe it's better to be looked over than overlooked."
"I used to be Snow White, but I drifted."
"It's not the men in my life that count, but the life in my men."
"Ten men waiting at the door? Send one home. I'm tired."
"Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"
"When women go wrong, men go right after them."
