On her comic acrobatics: "One day I happened to put my foot up and twist it round a little. Something in the way I did it made the audience laugh . . . as I found it amused people I began to do more and more weird stunts . . . I'm so identified with this kind of part that I'm afraid I'd have a lot of trouble if I tried to take up anything else. If I were playing in an Ibsen tragedy the audience would probably expect me to put one foot on the mantlepiece." --Charlotte Greenwood, quoted in unidentified 1916 newspaper

On her appearance: "The kind of wrapping you come in has nothing to do with it. As quickly as you realize that, contentment and peace come--from the heart. Happiness is within you." --Charlotte Greenwood, quoted in WHATEVER BECAME OF...? by Richard Lamparski
