„It's like chasing a beautiful woman for 80 years. Finally, she relents and you say, "I am terribly sorry. I'm tired."“

—  Paul Newman, Upon winning the 1986 Academy Award for Best Actor, (in The Color of Money), after having being nominated seven times; quoted in Tom O'Neil, "Gold Derby," http://goldderby.latimes.com/awards_goldderby/2006/09/an_oscar_finall.html, Los Angeles Times (2006-09-03)

„Who on earth could blame them? Ah, no wonder
the men of Troy and Argives under arms have suffered
years of agony all for her, for such a woman.
Beauty, terrible beauty!
A deathless goddess—so she strikes our eyes!“

—  Homér Ancient Greek epic poet, author of the Iliad and the Odyssey 750
III. 156–158 (tr. Robert Fagles); of Helen. Richmond Lattimore's translation: : Surely there is no blame on Trojans and strong-greaved Achaians if for long time they suffer hardship for a woman like this one. Terrible is the likeness of her face to immortal goddesses.
