Quotes

#Quote
1[on asking Ricky Martin about his sexual orientation] "When I think back on it now, I feel it was an inappropriate question."
2Unless you and I fornicate in front of everybody, people aren't going to think we get along. (to co-anchor Harry Reasoner of ABC World News Tonight with David Muir (1953).
3[Upon receiving a GLAAD award in 2008 for a report on transgender children] You can forget all the Emmys. This means more to me.
4Motherhood is tough. If you just want a wonderful little creature to love, you can get a puppy.
5My own opinion is that there's far too little flirtation in our country as it is. Most attractive males talk to most attractive women as if they were Rotarians comparing sales percentages in Des Moines.
6[on interviewing] I find very often people like to confront rumors. It depends on how much they trust you. And you have to have a line between what is tasteful and what isn't.
7I was the kind nobody thought could make it. I had a funny Boston accent. I couldn't pronounce my R's. I wasn't a beauty.
8[advice from Don Hewitt, producer of 60 Minutes (1968), in 1957] You're a marvelous girl, but stay out of television.
