"Plump? Don't be polite at the expense of the truth. I'm fat out here [San Francisco] and thin in the East. If I train down to thinness here, I'll be a skeleton to Broadway when I get back." -- Louise Dresser (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“Plump? Don’t be polite at the expense of the truth. I’m fat out here [San Francisco] and thin in the East. If I train down to thinness here, I’ll be a skeleton to Broadway when I get back. Odd, isn’t it, that so few people are satisfied with themselves? The fat people want to be thin and the thin people want to be fat; the tragedian always thinks he would have made a great comedian, and the comedian always wants to be something else.”Louise Dresser
