"I don't need anyone to rectify my existence. The most profound relationship we will ever have is the one with ourselves."
"You can't stop loving or wanting to love because when its right it's the best thing in the world. When you're in a relationship and its good, even if nothing else in your life is right, you feel like your whole world is complete."Shirley MacLaine on Keith Sweat
"Spiritual relationship is far more precious than physical. Physical relationship divorced from spiritual is body without soul."Shirley MacLaine on Mahatma Gandhi

"I've gotten crankier in my old age."
"I'd like to introduce someone who has just come into my life. I've admired him for 35 years. He's someone who represents integrity, honesty, art, and on top of that stuff I'm actually sleeping with him."
"I wasn't afraid of getting old, because I was never a great beauty."
"I mean, no one asks beauty secrets of me, or 'What size do you wear?' or 'Who's your couturier?' They ask me about really deep things and I love that."
"Someday perhaps change will occur when times are ready for it instead of always when it is too late. Someday change will be accepted as life itself."
