Raquel Welch Quotes

There aren't any hard women, only soft men.
We all have a childhood dream that when there is love, everything goes like silk, but the reality is that marriage requires a lot of compromise.
You know what's the sexiest thing of all? A little mystery.
Once you get rid of the idea that you must please other people before you please yourself, and you begin to follow your own instincts - only then can you be successful. You become more satisfied, and when you are, other people will tend to be satisfied by what you do.
Just as you maintain your home, your car, your garden, you should look after your greatest gift: your body.
