Zsa Zsa Gabor remembered in 10 timeless quotes, dahling


The late actress and socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor, who passed away Sunday at the age of 99, was known for many things — among them her thick Hungarian accent, numerous marriages and the single word “dahling.”

And while her career included many TV and film appearances (her IMDB page is quite the scroll), she’ll forever be remembered for her style and wit.

In no particular order, here are ten quotes from Gabor over the years that prove just what a treasure she was:

“I never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back.”

“I believe that in life you should always take the serious things lightly and the light things seriously. This attitude of mine gets me into a lot of trouble.”


“I’m a marvelous housekeeper—every time I leave a man, I keep his house.”

“I tell you, in this world being a little crazy helps to keep you sane.”

“A girl must marry for love, and keep on marrying until she finds it.”


“I believe in large families. Every woman should have at least three husbands.”

“I don’t remember anybody’s name. Why do you think the ‘dahling’ thing started?”


“Macho does not prove mucho.”

“Parisian men make love all day and have no time to work; American men work all day and have no time for love.”

“When I’m alone, I can sleep crossways in bed without an argument.”
