“I love to go into a Photoshow and sit unknown, among the audience, watching the effect that my pictured acting has upon them; but I do that as a study rather than a gratification to my feelings, though, of course, I am pleased when I see that they like my efforts. I enjoy all my work when I am in the right mood, but it’s hard to act tragedy when one feels like comedy, or vice versa – and I always dislike rehearsing.” — Florence Lawrence in 1911
“I love the country, the seaside, the mountains, the farm are equally dear to me. I enjoy walking and swimming, and I adore a baseball game. Automobiling is delightful, especially in the country. Once the report spread abroad that I had been killed in an auto accident and I was compelled to go to St. Louis to prove myself alive.” — Florence Lawrence in 1911
“Some days I do not pose at all; other days the work continues into the wee sma’ hours. I do not care for social functions, and in leisure time enjoy the opera, the regular drama, or the Photoplay. I delight in reading the old writers, especially Lytton and Thackeray, – I also like needlework.” — Florence Lawrence in 1911

“I like the people I meet and work with in Motion Pictures. They’re frank and honest and sincere. I like the work, too, for there are no stage tricks about it; everything must be done absolutely naturally. There is less talking in the pictures now, which is a great improvement. The players must think and convey their thoughts by facial expression. It is wonderful training. Then I love the outdoor life, the long rides, the scenery, the pleasant companionships, and we have our easy times while the poor director is hunting around for suitable scenery.” — Florence Lawrence
