Famous quotes containing the words fanny brice, brice and/or fanny:

    Being a funny person does an awful lot of things to you. You feel that you mustn’t get serious with people. They don’t expect it from you, and they don’t want to see it. You’re not entitled to be serious, you’re a clown, and they only want you to make them laugh.
    Fanny Brice (1891–1951)

    Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?
    —Fanny Brice (1891–1951)

    here in hell
    We’re drinking tea from a Grecian Urn long after
    Your Paphian Fanny let tubercles quell
    Ethereal passion: I know it by your laughter!
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
