Famous Creative Women Quotations from . . .

Ella Fitzgerald
(1917-1996) born on
Apr 25
US jazz singer. "The "First Lady of Song" was adept at improvising jazz and scat; won 13 Grammys."

It isn't where you came from; it's where you're going that counts.

The only thing better than singing is more singing.
"I stole everything that I heard, but mostly I stole from the horns."
"Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there's love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong."
I guess what everyone wants more than anything else is to be loved. And to know that you loved me for my singing is too much for me. Forgive me if I don't have all the words. Maybe I can sing it and you'll understand.
