"i'm very proud of what I did and I loved my career and have good, funny memories and all the good things that come with 19 years of working as an actress. And then I've had 25 years of fascinating work in diplomatic service, so it's certainly two different career tracks, both completely different but both very rewarding, personally." --Shirley Temple Black to New York Post, April 23, 1996.
