Julie Harris Quotes:

Berenice Sadie Brown: Look at your hair to begin with. Done had all your hair shaved off like a convict. You tie this ribbon around this head with no hair, it looks peculiar.
Frances 'Frankie' Addams: But I'm going to wash and try to stretch my hair tonight.


Miss Thing: Last week I was 19. Today I'm 42. If I had an eggshell for every day I'd spent alone, I'd have a lot of eggshells.


[after Grace slaps Maish]
Maish Rennick: Do you really want to help him? Here's how you can help him. Leave him alone. If you gotta' say anything to him, tell him you pity him. Tell him you feel so sorry for him you could cry. But don't con him. Don't tell him he could be a counsellor at a boys' camp. He's been chasing ghosts so long he'll believe anything. Any kind of a ghost. Championship belt, pretty girl... maybe just 24 hours without an ache in his body. Doesn't make any difference. It all passed him.
Grace Miller: I just thought that - maybe the next thing he wanted he ought to get.
[starts to weep]
Grace Miller: That would only be fair. I wished to God it was something I could've given him.
