“George Ovey is a funny man. There are lots of men on the stage who are able to make people laugh, but the number of men who can raise a laugh naturally, without forcing it, may be counted upon the fingers of one hand. George Ovey is one of them.” — press release from 1911 […]

“In the first place, I haven’t attempted to do anything I can’t do. For instance, I don’t try to tell an assortment of alleged funny stories, for I tell my audiences, they can probably tell me a good deal better and newer stories than I can tell. Then, again, I make apologies for any breaks […]

“Mary Garden is jealous of no one. The world well knows who created the roles of Salome and Aphrodite. I may be getting old now, but these persons who have accused me of being jealous are amusing. Mary Garden has had nearly everything in her time that a star desires. Yes, even a voice.” — […]

But I believe that you can have anything in the world if you go after it hard enough. And I am going to try." -- Pauline Garon (Bizarre Los Angeles)
