  • Don't be afraid to feel as angry or as loving as you can, because when you feel nothing, it's just death.
    • Quoted in: The New Bajan, (1990) p. 22
  • I am not alone. I am free. I no longer have to be a credit, I don't have to be a symbol to anybody, I don't have to be a first to anybody. I don't have to be an imitation of a white woman that Hollywood sort of hoped I'd become. I'm me, and I'm like nobody else.
    • Lena Horne (ca. 1997) in: Susan Ratcliffe (2012) Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, p. 208
