Great Quotes By Ali McGraw, now 71! It has been 40 years since Love Story!
I just watched Ali McGraw on Oprah DVR-ed! Ali has LEARNED so much in her years on this earth and shares so much that I was lead to write down some of her comments. I thought some of you might enjoy them as well. Here are some great quotes from their conversation.
Ali is 71! I can not believe that! She does not look like it! BUT hair color makes a big difference.
Ali: “I am learning how to live in the present and being grateful for the working piece rather than the parts of life that are NOT working. Balance is important, too.”
Oprah: “I am really good at telling people how much they need balance but I am not good at having balance in my own life.”
Ali: “The message of the movie Love Story was ‘Love means you never having to say you’re sorry’ and
Ali now says, ‘what does that mean? It makes NO sense!’ “
Ali, “Saying you are sorry is not the deal – changing your behavior is the deal!”
When discussing relationships Ali said:
“I don’t believe in mind- reading. We must speak what we want and here’s what I can not deal with. I am sure it took me well over 60 years to ask for exactly what I want.”
Ali: “Many people are career people pleasers and that makes life hard.”
Ali: “You have to tell the truth and have the courage to know that you might not get your way.”
Oprah Winfrey: “The Movie Love Story contributed to the ILLUSION of what love is.”
Ali: “In my time, people were fed a list of what life should be and it was a ridiculous omission of life itself.”
