“They both reached a peak, they reached a pinnacle; they had money, they had everything. I’d never seen people so adored, so admired. But there was a terrible price to pay and in the end, you suddenly saw that all the beauty, all the riches, all the fame was worth very little. The only things that were priceless were the moments of inspiration.. those moments will live forever. It is a glimpse of God.”
"I only saw Vivien Leigh once in my life in person. That was at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Boston. I got into the elevator and she was there. And I got goose pimples. I got off on the third floor, like a fool. The goose pimples remained for ten minutes, which I am told, is a medical phenomenon." —Walter Matthau
