Leonine

Mae West biography cover

“…I felt it was time to play. Most of my thoughts, time and energy had
gone into creative effort. And this restriction of the love drive, the
headshrinkers will tell you, is the greatest urge one really has. When one
sublimates the sex drive into creative work it puts a person in high gear,
mentally. I admit it. But it is against my nature to bottle up the
biological plans of pleasure for any length of time. I hope I don’t sound
as if I have discovered the secret salve that soothes the universe, but I do
want to add my small footnote on the subject…”

  1. Isn’t she a babe? Happy Bday Mae. She says it all so subtley abt this subject of passion.
    I’ve been accused of being too passionate many times. I think its blessing not a curse but there are lots of people are soo trad ( and fearful) abt this topic and have to tell judge you. Why can’t we all just live and let live. Mae was a pioneer others would call her a tramp.
    Bring on the New moon!

  2. Ten men waiting for me at the door?
    Send one of them home, I’m tired.

    I generally avoid temptation unless I can’t resist it.

    A hard man is good to find.

    She’s a classic!

  3. So many good lines.

    ‘I like restraint, if it doesn’t go too far. ‘

    ‘I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure.’

    ‘When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I’ve never tried before.’

    ‘If I asked for a cup of coffee, someone would search for the double meaning.’
