Mae West Quotes about Men and Marriage

When I'm good I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better.

Many people think of Mae West as a seductive, sometimes vulgar, bottled blonde movie star of the 1930s. She was that and so much more!  In fact she was a writer of hit Broadway plays, movies, and was the highest paid movie sensation of her time. Her first small movie role with popular star George Raft caused him to later remark, “She stole everything but the cameras.” She was a comic genius, master of the sexual innuendo, and many of her famous quotes about men are still in use today.

I didn't discover curves; I only uncovered them.

I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

I speak two languages, Body and English.

It's not the men in my life that count, it's the life in my men.

The best way to hold a man is in your arms.

To err is human, but it feels divine.

When women go wrong, men go right after them.

And my personal favorite...

A hard man is a good find.
