„I was blessed with a sense of my own destiny. I have never sold myself short. I have never judged myself by other people’s standards. I have always expected a great deal of myself, and if I fail, I fail myself.“

—  Sophia Loren

As quoted in Sophia, Living and Loving: Her Own Story (1979) by A. E. Hotchner, p. 76.
Contexto: I was blessed with a sense of my own destiny. I have never sold myself short. I have never judged myself by other people’s standards. I have always expected a great deal of myself, and if I fail, I fail myself. So failure or reversal does not bring out resentment in me because I cannot blame others for any misfortune that befalls me.

„I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful.“

—  Sophia Loren

As quoted in Valentines & Vitriol (1977) by Rex Reed
Contexto: I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don't understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now.

„Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got.“

—  Sophia Loren

As quoted in Halliwell’s Filmgoer’s Companion (1984) Leslie Halliwell
Variante: Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got.

„I was born wise. Street-wise, people-wise, self-wise. This wisdom was my birthright. I was also born old. And illegitimate. But the two big advantages I had at birth were to have been born wise and to have been born in poverty.“

—  Sophia Loren

Hotchner in Sophia, Living and Loving: Her Own Story (1979), p. 9 http://books.google.com/books?id=IBBbPUCmiNUC&q=%22I+was+born+wise+Street-wise+people-wise+self-wise+This+wisdom+was+my+birthright+I+was+also+born+old+And+illegitimate+But+the+two+big+advantages+I+had+at+birth+were+to+have+been+born+wise+and+to+have+been+born+in+poverty%22&pg=PA9#v=onepage

„Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.“
