Best Quotes by Sophia Loren (Top 10)

  1. There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
  2. Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
  3. A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.
  4. Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.
  5. I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don't understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now.
  6. Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.
  7. Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got.
  8. If you haven't cried, your eyes can't be beautiful.
  9. Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go so much further than people with vastly superior talent.
  10. I have my own peculiar yardstick for measuring a man: Does he have the courage to cry in a moment of grief? Does he have the compassion not to hunt an animal? In his relationship with a woman, is he gentle? Real manliness is nurtured in kindness and gentleness, which I associate with intelligence, comprehension, tolerance, justice, education, and high morality. If only men realized how easy it is to open a woman's heart with kindness, and how many women close their hearts to the assaults of the Don Juans.
