Ten Amazing Quotes by Billie Holiday:

“If you copy it means you are working without any real feelings.”

“Love is like a faucet, it turns off and on.”

“Somebody once said we never know what is enough until we know what’s more than enough.”

“You can be up to your boobies in white satin, with gardenias in your hair and no sugar cane for miles, but you can still be working on a plantation.”

“Money, you got lots of friends. They’re crowding around your door. But when you are gone and spending ends. They don’t come no more.”

“Sometimes it’s worse to win a fight than to lose.”

“A kiss that is never tasted is forever wasted.”

“The difficult I will do right now. The impossible will take a little while.”

“If I’m going to sing like someone else, then I don’t need to sing at all.”

“I never hurt nobody but myself and that’s nobody’s business but my own.”
