“I am fated to be unhappy in love. I know it. Each time that I meet someone whom I truly love, something happens. It isn’t that men do not love me. I could have any man in the world right at my feet. But I don’t want them. I have no interest in them, now. Perhaps if I could have had children, I would have been happy like other women. But even that was denied me. I shall not love again, for it brings me only pain and loneliness in the end.” – Pola Negri (Bizarre Los Angeles)
