#Quote
1[In a 1986 interview] Katharine Cornell was a lovely, warm, helpful, friendly, dear colleague. She took an interest in the younger people in the company and tried to help them get jobs. She actively tried to get me a job--as if she were my agent.
2Comedy's a serious business. You've got to be true and funny and not look as though you're trying.
3Compassion is a luxury of the affluent.
