"What I want to give in the theatre is beauty, that's what I want to give."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Dame Edith Evans on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Dame Edith Evans on Victor Hugo
"Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person."Dame Edith Evans on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Dame Edith Evans on Anne Roiphe
"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."Dame Edith Evans on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"I know that if I'd had to go and take an exam for acting, I wouldn't have got anywhere. You don't take exams for acting, you take your courage."
