Lucille Ball quotes (24)

Ability is of little account without opportunity.
Lucille Ball   Category:

How I Love Lucy was born? We decided that instead of divorce lawyers profiting from our mistakes, we'd profit from them.
Lucille Ball   Category:

I am a real ham. I love an audience. I work better with an audience. I am dead, in fact, without one.
Lucille Ball   Category:

I hate failure and that divorce was a Number One failure in my eyes. It was the worst period of my life. Neither Desi nor I have been the same since, physically or mentally.
Lucille Ball   Category:

I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line.
Lucille Ball   Category:

Lucille Ball   Category:

I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
Lucille Ball   Category:

I will never do another TV series. It couldn't top I Love Lucy, and I'd be foolish to try. In this business, you have to know when to get off.
Lucille Ball   Category:

I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.
Lucille Ball   Category: Wisdom

I'm happy that I have brought laughter because I have been shown by many the value of it in so many lives, in so many ways.
Lucille Ball   Category:

I'm not funny. What I am is brave.
Lucille Ball   Category:

I'm sometimes scared of everything that has happened to us. We didn't think Desilu Productions would grow so big. We merely wanted to be together and have two children.
Lucille Ball   Category:

If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do.
Lucille Ball   Category:

In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.
Lucille Ball   Category:

It's a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.
Lucille Ball   Category:

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Lucille Ball   Category:

Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work - and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.
Lucille Ball   Category:

Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead.
Lucille Ball   Category:

One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn' t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.
Lucille Ball   Category:

The more things you do, the more you can do.
Lucille Ball   Category:

The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
Lucille Ball   Category:

Use a make-up table with everything close at hand and don't rush; otherwise you'll look like a patchwork quilt.
Lucille Ball   Category:

Women's Lib? Oh, I'm afraid it doesn't interest me one bit. I've been so liberated it hurts.
Lucille Ball   Category:

You see much more of your children once they leave home.
