"When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life now that I am old I know that it is."Shirley MacLaine on Oscar Wilde
"A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money."Shirley MacLaine on John Ruskin
"Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants."Shirley MacLaine on Benjamin Franklin

"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."
