12 Quotes from the late American Actress Ginger Rogers

Born on July 16, 1911, the prolific Oscar-winning actress was well known for her work on both stage and film from the 1930s to 1950s. With a career that spanned nearly 40 years, Ginger Rogers was also widely recognised as a singer and a dancer, particularly for her dance routine with Fred Astaire in various films. Today, we celebrate her legacy by sharing 12 things that she said:


Being a strong woman:
You know, there's nothing damnable about being a strong woman. The world needs strong women. There are a lot of strong women you do not see who are guiding, helping, mothering strong men. They want to remain unseen. It's kind of nice to be able to play a strong woman who is seen.


Being a romantic:
Perhaps I am old-fashioned, but black and white films still hold an affectionate place in my heart; they have an incomparable mystique and mood.


On dressing appropriately:
I believe in dressing for the occasion. There's a time for sweater, sneakers and Levis and a time for the full-dress jazz.


On men's seeming inability to multi-task:
Part of the joy of dancing is conversation. Trouble is, some men can't talk and dance at the same time.


About her appetite:
I try to feed my hunger rather than my appetite.


On life:
Only I know my life.


On the importance of hard work:
The only way to enjoy anything in this life is to earn it first.


On love:
When two people love each other, they don't look at each other, they look in the same direction.


On giving joy to people:
The most important thing in anyone's life is to be giving something. The quality I can give is fun and joy and happiness. This is my gift.


On gossips:
My faith in humanity leads me to believe that people are looking for something more elevating than the sordid details of the intimate aspects of one's personal life.

Gossip is hardly uplifting.


On stupidity:
I cannot abide stupidity, in myself or in others.
