My Fair Lady Quotes (1964)
Have you ever met a man of good character where women are concerned?

PROFESSOR HENRY HIGGINS

I find that the moment a woman makes friends with me she becomes jealous, exacting, suspicious, and a damn nuisance. And I find that the moment I make friends with a woman I become selfish and tyrannical. So here I am, a confirmed old bachelor and likely to remain so.

PROFESSOR HENRY HIGGINS

Every night before you get into bed, where you used to say your prayers, I want you to say "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain" fifty times. You'll get much further with the Lord if you learn not to offend His ears.

PROFESSOR HENRY HIGGINS

You are a devil. You can twist the heart in a girl the same way some fellows twist her arms to hurt her!

ELIZA DOOLITTLE

Women are irrational, that's all there is to that! Their heads are full of cotton, hay, and rags. They're nothing but exasperating, irritating, vacillating, calculating, agitating, maddening and infuriating hags!

PROFESSOR HENRY HIGGINS

The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.

ELIZA DOOLITTLE

The old bloke died and left me four thousand pounds a year in his bloomin' will. Who asked him to make a gentleman out of me? I was happy. I was free. I touched pretty nigh everyone for money when I wanted it, same as I touched him. Now, I'm tied neck and heels, and everybody touches me. A year ago, I hadn't a relation in the world except one or two who wouldn't speak to me. Now, I've fifty, and not a decent week's wages amongst the lot of 'em. Oh, I have to live for others now, not for myself. Middle-class morality.

ALFRED P. DOOLITTLE

I sold flowers; I didn't sell myself. Now you've made a lady of me, I'm not fit to sell anything else.

ELIZA DOOLITTLE

The majesty and grandeur of the English language, it's the greatest possession we have. The noblest thoughts that ever flowed through the hearts of men are contained in its extraordinary, imaginative, and musical mixtures of sounds.

PROFESSOR HENRY HIGGINS

There even are places where English completely disappears; in America they haven't used it for years.
