I find bringing the country to the brink of war unilaterally five weeks before an election questionable - and very, very frightening.
We have a president who stole the presidency through family ties, arrogance and intimidation, employing Republican operatives to exercise the tactics of voter fraud by disenfranchising thousands of blacks, elderly Jews and other minorities.
Why am I so famous? What am I doing right? What are the others doing wrong?
I've been called many names like perfectionist, difficult and obsessive. I think it takes obsession, takes searching for the details for any artist to be good.
I hated singing. I wanted to be an actress. But I don't think I'd have made it any other way.
I arrived in Hollywood without having my nose fixed, my teeth capped, or my name changed. That is very gratifying to me.
How I wish we lived in a time when laws were not necessary to safeguard us from discrimination.
A man who graduated high in his class at Yale Law School and made partnership in a top law firm would be celebrated. A man who invested wisely would be admired, but a woman who accomplishes this is treated with suspicion.
I don't care what you say about me. Just be sure to spell my name wrong.
Around people I don't know, I'm totally at a loss.
They're called "angels" because they're in heaven until the reviews come out.

What is exciting is not for one person to be stronger than the other... but for two people to have met their match and yet they are equally as stubborn, as obstinate, as passionate, as crazy as the other.
Myths are a waste of time. They prevent progression.
I wish I could be like Shaw who once read a bad review of one of his plays, called the critic and said: 'I have your review in front of me and soon it will be behind me.'
I don't enjoy public performances and being up on a stage. I don't enjoy the glamour. Like tonight, I am up on stage and my feet hurt.
To have ego means to believe in your own strength. And to also be open to other people's views. It is to be open, not closed. So, yes, my ego is big, but it's also very small in some areas. My ego is responsible for my doing what I do - bad or good.
There is nothing more important in life than love.
My biggest nightmare is I'm driving home and get sick and go to hospital. I say: 'Please help me.' And the people say: 'Hey, you look like...' And I'm dying while they're wondering whether I'm Barbra Streisand.
Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work... a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.
Success to me is having ten honeydew melons and eating only the top half of each slice.

The audience is the best judge of anything. They cannot be lied to. Truth brings them closer. A moment that lags - they're gonna cough.
