"A good marriage is different to a happy marriage."
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."Debra Winger on Mignon McLaughlin
"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."Debra Winger on Socrates
"It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."Debra Winger on Friedrich Nietzsche
"How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being."Debra Winger on Oscar Wilde
"Don't marry the person you think you can live with marry only the individual you think you can't live without."Debra Winger on James C. Dobson
"I happen to be interested in watching a face age. I like faces of women aging so it makes me personally quite sad. That's a beautiful gift from God. If people don't want to see that anymore then I won't be in anymore movies."
"Never say never, but the thought of electively cutting oneself is beyond my grasp, and I also object to it politically. Denying the lines on our faces makes a comment about age and wisdom I don't care to make."
"People pay to see movies with women looking beautiful, but I think there will be a place for me to play women looking my own age."
"There's a small club of women who are willing to age."
"I hope to find the roles that are age appropriate but not yearning to be younger, or parenting ad nauseam."
