Dorothy Dandridge Quotes

1. Have you ever caught sight of yourself by accident and see yourself from the outside?

2. If I were white, I could capture the world.

3. (when asked her opinion of Lena Horne) It is not my fault she can only get parts in pictures that I turn down.

4. I can't play a slave.

5. Carmen Jones (1954) was the best break I've ever had. But no producer ever knocked on my door. There just aren't that many parts for a black actress.

6. It's a wonderful therapy. You don't have time to feel sorry for yourself.

7. It (prejudice) is such a waste. It makes you logy and half-alive. It gives you nothing. It takes away.
