Zitate Beverly Sills

Citát „Kunst ist die Signatur der Zivilisation.“

„There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.“

—  Beverly Sills

As quoted in Conquering an Enemy Called Average (1996) by John L. Mason

„I needed to sing — desperately.“

—  Beverly Sills

Bubbles : A Self-Portrait (1976), p. 114
Kontext: I needed to sing — desperately. My voice poured out more easily because I was no longer singing for anyone's approval; I was beyond caring about the public's reaction, I just wanted to enjoy myself. … I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity, as a result of my childrens' problems. I didn't feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not — more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving.

„I lived through the garbage. I might as well dine on the caviar.“
