Famous quotes containing the words sarah bernhardt and/or bernhardt:

    What would life be without art? Science prolongs life. To consist of what—eating, drinking, and sleeping? What is the good of living longer if it is only a matter of satisfying the requirements that sustain life? All this is nothing without the charm of art.
    Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)

    The dramatic art would appear to be rather a feminine art; it contains in itself all the artifices which belong to the province of woman: the desire to please, facility to express emotions and hide defects, and the faculty of assimilation which is the real essence of woman.
    —Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)
