“You live in the present and you eliminate things that don’t matter. You don’t carry the burden of the past. I’m not impressed by the past very much. The past bores me, to tell you the truth; it really bores me. I don’t remember many movies and certainly not my own.”Paulette Goddard

 “Did I hear someone say platinum blondes are out and golden blondes have taken their place? Well, I am not prepared to argue for either side.

Miss Goddard, according to her reliable press agent, is a New York society debutante and stage actress who made tests at Universal before she joined up with the Roach company.”  — Louella O. Parsons in 1932
