Ingrid Bergman quotes

6 quotes by Ingrid Bergman


I think that Ingrid [Ingrid Bergman] was at home only in one place in the world: working.

Helen Hayes       
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.

Ingrid Bergman       
Happiness is good health and a bad memory.

Ingrid Bergman       
I think my life has been wonderful. I have done what I felt like. I was given courage and I was given adventure and that has carried me along. And then also a sense of humor and a little bit of common sense. It has been a very rich life.

Ingrid Bergman       
She [Ingrid Bergman] never showed herself like that in life. In life, Mum showed courage. She was always a little vulnerable, courageous, but vulnerable. Mother had a sort of presence, like Golda, I was surprised to see it ... When I saw her performance, I saw a mother that I'd never seen before - this woman with balls.

Isabella Rosellini       
She [Ingrid Bergman] had chosen a very small part, and I couldn't persuade her to change her mind. She was sweetly stubborn. But stubborn she was ... Since her part was so small, I decided to film her one big scene, where she talks for almost five minutes, straight, all in one long take. A lot of actresses would have hesitated over that. She loved the idea and made the most of it. She ran the gamut of emotions. I've never seen anything like it.

Sidney Lumet
