Mae West Segue: Why don't you come up sometime and see me?

A tattered paperback that I've treasured for years is The Wit and Wisdom of Mae West by Joseph Weintraub. It contains a brief biography, but the bulk of the book is quotes and pictures. So, for your edification and entertainment, here are a few of my favorites:

When I'm good I'm very good, but when I'm bad I'm better.

It's not the men in my life that counts, it's the life in my men.

I used to be Snow White but I drifted.

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.

I'm a girl who lost her reputation and never missed it.

Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

It's hard to be funny when you have to be "clean."

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
