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

    What matters poverty? What matters anything to him who is “enamoured” of our art? Does he not carry in himself every joy and every beauty?
    Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)

    You must have this charm to reach the pinnacle. It is made of everything and of nothing, the striving will, the look, the walk, the proportions of the body, the sound of the voice, the ease of the gestures. It is not at all necessary to be handsome or to be pretty; all that is needful is charm.
    —Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)
