Famous quotes containing the word pickford:

    It was occasions like this that made me more resolved than ever that my family would someday know real security. I never for a moment doubted that I myself would ultimately provide it for them.
    —Mary Pickford (1893–1979)

    I wish to apologize for this picture and for my performance. I think they are both inexcusably bad.
    —Mary Pickford (1893–1979)

    I sometimes wonder whether, in the still, sleepless hours of the night, the consciences of ... professional gossips do not stalk them. I myself believe in a final reckoning, when we shall be held accountable for our misdeeds. Do they? If so, they have cause to worry over many scoops that brought them a day’s dubious laurels and perhaps destroyed someone’s peace forever.
    —Mary Pickford (1893–1979)
