"Singing is a way of escaping. It's another world. I'm no longer on earth." “Americans want beauties, not me. I'm not the Parisian bombshell they expected. Can you see me as a chorus girl? Where's my feather up the ass? They think I'm sad, they're dumb. I don't connect to them.” "If God has allowed me to earn so much money, it is because He knows I give it all away."
“Every damn fool thing you do in this life you pay for.”
“Use your faults, use your defects; then you're going to be a star.”
“American journalist: If you were to give advice to a woman, what would it be? Edith Piaf: Love. American journalist: To a young girl? Edith Piaf: Love. American journalist: To a child? Edith Piaf: Love.” ― Édith Piaf
