I’m in love with wine.
All babies are beautiful.
I think I will die of laughter.
I’ve been forgotten by our Good Lord.
I’ve got only one wrinkle, and I’m sitting on it.
I never wear mascara; I laugh until I cry often.
If you can’t change something, don’t worry about it.
Always keep your smile. That’s how I explain my long life.
I see badly, I hear badly, and I feel bad, but everything’s fine.
I have a huge desire to live and a big appetite, especially for sweets.
I have legs of iron, but to tell you the truth, they’re starting to rust and buckle a bit.
I took pleasure when I could. I acted clearly and morally and without regret. I’m very lucky.
Being young is a state of mind, it doesn’t depend on one’s body. I’m actually still a young girl, it’s just that I haven’t looked so good for the past 70 years.
