“I’ll never play mother parts, sad parts, dumb parts, or a virtuous wife, betrayed or otherwise. I pity weak women, good or bad, but I can’t like them. A woman should be strong either in her goodness or badness.”

- Mae West, who didn’t begin her career in film until she was nearly 40 and yet two years into it she became the highest paid entertainer in the nation.
