 heart, know my sense of optimism and know where I want to lead the
 country.  And I tease people by saying, 'A leader, you can't say,
 follow me the world is going to be worse.'  I'm an optimistic
 person.  I'm an inherently content person.  I've got a great sense

Subj:     Goldwynisms (S74, S624b)
          From: Anaise

 Silly quotations from legendary movie producer Samuel

 the English language. Here are some of my favorite

 "An oral contract isn't worth the paper it's written on."

     his head examined."
 "I had a great idea this morning, but I didn't like it."
 "Gentlemen, include me out."

 "If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest
     man alive."
 "I read part of it all the way through."
 "If I look confused it's because I'm thinking."
 "That's the trouble with directors.
     Always biting the hand that lays the golden egg."
 "Never make forecasts, especially about the future."
     And perhaps the best of them all:
 "I don't want yes men around me.  I want everyone to
     tell the truth, even if it costs them their jobs."

From: ossama on 98-04-20
 "In two words, impossible."
 "Include me out"
 "You fail to overlook the crucial point."
 "For your information, just answer me one question!'
 "Tell them (the actors) to stand closer apart."

     I wouldn't be in this business."
 "I'm willing to admit that I may not always be right,
     but I am never wrong."
 "I don't care if it (his new picture) doesn't make a nickel.
     I just want every man woman and child in America to see it."
 When Goldwyn's secretary asked him if she should destroy
     files that were more than ten years old, he answered,
     "Yes, but keep copies."
 When told he couldn't film Radclyffe Hall's "The Well of
     Loneliness" because it dealed with lesbians, he replies,
     "All right, where they got lesbians, we'll use Austrians."
 "True, I've been a long time making up my mind, but now I'm
     giving you a definite answer.  I won't say yes and I
     won't say no--but I'm giving you a definite maybe."

From: Ossama's Laugh on 6/14/98
 "Put it out of your mind. In no time, it will be
     a forgotten memory."
