Sophia Loren quotes (22)

A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.
Sophia Loren   Category:

After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery. It's better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.
Sophia Loren   Category:

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
Sophia Loren   Category:

Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.
Sophia Loren   Category:

Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go so much further than people with vastly superior talent.
Sophia Loren   Category:

I am against all war.
Sophia Loren   Category:

I think the quality of sexiness comes from within. It is something that is in you or it isn't and it really doesn't have much to do with breasts or thighs or the pout of your lips.
Sophia Loren   Category:

I'm a giraffe. I even walk like a giraffe with a long neck and legs. It's a pretty dumb animal, mind you.
Sophia Loren   Category:

I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don't understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now.
Sophia Loren   Category:

If you haven't cried, your eyes can't be beautiful.
Sophia Loren   Category:

It is a great advantage for a system of philosophy to be substantially true.
Sophia Loren   Category:

It's a mistake to think that once you're done with school you need never learn anything new.
Sophia Loren   Category:

Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.
Sophia Loren   Category:

No press conference announcing a last film. I'd just steal away. Best way because, if by chance after two or three years something interesting comes up, I would not - like Sinatra - have to say: "Well, I've thought it over and decided to come back."
Sophia Loren   Category:

Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got.
Sophia Loren   Category:

Sex is like washing your face - just something you do because you have to. Sex without love is absolutely ridiculous. Sex follows love, it never precedes it.
Sophia Loren   Category:

Spaghetti can be eaten most successfully if you inhale it like a vacuum cleaner.
Sophia Loren   Category: Food

The facts of life are that a child who has seen war cannot be compared with a child who doesn't know what war is except from television.
Sophia Loren   Category:

The two big advantages I had at birth were to have been born wise and to have been born in poverty.
Sophia Loren   Category:

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
Sophia Loren   Category:

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
Sophia Loren   Category:

You have to be born a sex symbol. You don't become one. If you're born with it, you'll have it even when you're 100 years old.
