Frasi Beverly Sills

„There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.“

— Beverly Sills
As quoted in Conquering an Enemy Called Average (1996) by John L. Mason

„I needed to sing — desperately.“

— Beverly Sills
Context: I needed to sing — desperately. My voice poured out more easily because I was no longer singing for anyone's approval; I was beyond caring about the public's reaction, I just wanted to enjoy myself. … I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity, as a result of my childrens' problems. I didn't feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not — more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving. Bubbles : A Self-Portrait (1976), p. 114

„My voice had a long, nonstop career.“

— Beverly Sills
Context: My voice had a long, nonstop career. It deserves to be put to bed with quiet and dignity, not yanked out every once in a while to see if it can still do what it used to do. It can't. As quoted in TIME (1983), and The Beacon Book of Quotations by Women (1992) by Rosalie Maggio

„I lived through the garbage. I might as well dine on the caviar.“

— Beverly Sills
Context: Why should I go when it's going so good? … I lived through the garbage. I might as well dine on the caviar. As quoted in "Caviar for Beverly Sills" in The New York Times (15 October 1984) http://www.nytimes.com/1984/10/15/nyregion/new-york-day-by-day-caviar-for-beverly-sills.html
