✨ Lauren Bacall Quotes:
"I never believed marriage was a lasting institution. I thought that to be married for five years was to be married forever."
"I am still working, I've never stopped and, while my health holds out, I won't stop."
"Yes, I saw Twilight (2008) - my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the "film" was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau's 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu (1922) and told her, "Now that's a vampire film!". And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!"
