Samuel Goldwyn

A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on.

I paid too much for it, but it's worth it.

When someone does something good, applaud! You will make two people happy.

I don't want any yes-men around me. I want everybody to tell me the truth even if it costs them their jobs.

You've got to take the bitter with the sour.

Legacy

The reason so many people turned up at his funeral is that they wanted to make sure he was dead.

Movies

If you want to send a message, use Western Union.

If I were in this business only for the business, I wouldn't be in this business.

Don't worry about the war. It's all over but the shooting.

Our comedies are not to be laughed at.

Every director bites the hand that lays the golden egg.

Why should people pay good money to go out and see bad films when they can stay home and see bad television for nothing?

Think

If I look confused it's because I'm thinking.

You fail to overlook the crucial point.

I'm willing to admit that I may not always be right, but I am never wrong.

Give me a smart idiot over a stupid genius any day.

Never make forecasts, especially about the future.

Go see it and see for yourself why you shouldn't go see it.

I never liked you, and I always will.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined.

Work

The harder I work, the luckier I get.

Writing

What we want is a story that starts with an earthquake and builds to a climax.

I read part of it all the way through.

I don't think anyone should write their autobiography until after they're dead.

Here I am paying big money to you writers and what for? All you do is change the words.
