WOMEN AND WISDOM

“Good girls go to heaven. But bad girls go everywhere.

Mary Jane (Mae) West (Brookly, NYC, 1893 – Hollywood, CA 1980) was an American actress, screen writer, playwright and sex symbol, which in the 1930’s with her suggestive and sexual dialogues became very popular, but also caused much controversy. These dialogues often explored the limits of what allowed the censorship. She wrote all her texts themselves. Some of these one-liners (e.g. Come up an ‘ see me some time and Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?) are still regularly cited.
