Claudette Colbert 1938

“There are some people in this world who can cope with departures, and there are others who cannot. I am definitely one of the cannots. I don’t know why it is but there is a certain hysteria whenever I leave a place. Even if it’s only the studio commissary where I have dropped in for a cup of tea. I’m sure to have left my gloves behind. I suppose I am just not psychologically prepared to leave places. That’s the reason I am never on time.”Claudette Colbert
