„I'd rather be a first-rate version of myself than a second-rate version of anybody.“

— Liza Minnelli
Context: I don't sing them because I couldn't sing them as well as she did. I'd rather be a first-rate version of myself than a second-rate version of anybody. Liza Minelli, interviewed by Gene Shalit in the September 1977 issue of The Ladies Home Journal, as quoted in [https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=yXMjAAAAIBAJ&sjid=a2cEAAAAIBAJ&pg=5851%2C3647577 "Women in the News,"] in The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (August 24, 1977), p. 6-D

„But I'd rather be a first-rate version of myself than a second-rate version of somebody else.“

— Liza Minnelli
Context: I'm carrying on a tradition. But I'd rather be a first-rate version of myself than a second-rate version of somebody else. I'm proud of my parents, and the only way that I can prove it to them is to take what they gave me and work my head off. Liza Minelli, as quoted in [https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=5_4xAAAAIBAJ&sjid=zYYDAAAAIBAJ&pg=5008%2C323912 "The Return of Liza"] by Wilmer Ames, in The Bend Bulletin Family Weekly (November 1, 1981), p. 8

„You sing them better than anybody. I don't want to be a second-rate example of you. I want to be a first-rate example of myself.“

— Liza Minnelli
Context: It really scared me to do what Mom did because I never did anything that she did. I promised her that I would never sing her songs, and I kept my promise. "You sing them better than anybody. I don't want to be a second-rate example of you. I want to be a first-rate example of myself." Liza Minelli, as quoted in [https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=rmRGAAAAIBAJ&sjid=6ugMAAAAIBAJ&pg=3577%2C2269544 "Liza Minelli 'Never Felt Better' Despite Tabloids' Whispers"] by Douglas J. Rowe, in TV Plus: The Schenectady Sunday Gazette Supplement (June 9, 1996), p. 4

„I would rather present a first-rate version of myself than a second-rate version of Mama.“

— Liza Minnelli
Context: I couldn't sing Mama's special songs. I couldn't do them as well. I would rather present a first-rate version of myself than a second-rate version of Mama. Liza Minelli, as quoted in I Remember It Well (1975) by Vincente Minelli with Hector Arce, [https://books.google.com/books?id=D6jDtmiJCpkC&q=minelli+%22second-rate%22+%22first-rate+version%22&dq=minelli+%22second-rate%22+%22first-rate+version%22&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCoQ6AEwBGoVChMI0on3sqjdxgIVxHg-Ch1NhwVD p. 395]; reprinted in [https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=CfpjAAAAIBAJ&sjid=WuYDAAAAIBAJ&pg=7188%2C5401411 "Judy and Liza, Part 3"] by Vincente Minelli, in The Sydney Herald (August 15, 1975), p. 8

„Liza Minelli said she can't sing well enough those "special songs" of her late mother, Judy Garland, so she doesn't sing them at all. The award-winning entertainer said she'd "rather present a first-rate version of myself than a second-rate version of Mama."“

— Liza Minnelli
