"Beyond the beauty, the sex, the titillation, the surface, there is a human being. And that has to emerge."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Jeanne Moreau on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Jeanne Moreau 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."Jeanne Moreau on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Jeanne Moreau 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."Jeanne Moreau on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age."
"What is amazing for a woman of my age is that I change as the world is changing-and changing very, very fast. I don't think my mother had that opportunity to change."
"I've never worried about age."
"To me age is a number, just a number. Who cares?"
"If you're extremely, painfully frightened of age, it shows."
