Famous Creative Women Quotations from . . .

Billie Holiday
(1915-1959) born on
Apr 7
US singer. "She was a noted jazz vocalist whose 1956 autobiography, "Lady Sings the Blues," inspired the film, 1972."

Somebody once said we never know what is enough until we know what's more than enough.

"You can't copy anybody and end with anything. If you copy, it means you're working without any real feeling. No two people on earth are alike, and it's got to be that way in music or it isn't music."
"I can't stand to sing the same song the same way two nights in succession, let alone two years or ten years. If you can, then it ain't music, it's close-order drill or exercise or yodeling or something, not music."
I'm always making a comeback but nobody ever tells me where I've been.
Sometimes it's worse to win a fight than to lose.
