Doris: The succession of cheerful, period musicals I made, plus Oscar Levant's widely publicized remark about my virginity, contributed to what has been called my 'image', which is a word that baffles me. There never was any intent on my part either in my acting or in my private life to create any such thing as an image.
Doris: If there is a Heaven I'm sure Rock Hudson is there because he was such a kind person.
Doris: I like joy; I want to be joyous; I want to have fun on the set; I want to wear beautiful clothes and look pretty. I want to smile and I want to make people laugh. And that's all I want. I like it. I like being happy. I want to make others happy.
Doris: Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.
Doris: Everything's acceptable in Hollywood now, it seems. I'm glad I'm not there, because I would be screaming. I hope and pray that the Hollywood stars who are making so much money really take a stand.
Doris: You have to do things, you have to step out and stick up for animals, because they can't do anything for themselves.
Doris: I've been through everything. I always said I was like those round-bottomed circus dolls—you know, those dolls you could push down and they'd come back up?
Doris: I had the best co-stars you could ever have, and I miss them so much.
Doris: By the Light of the Silvery Moon and On Moonlight Bay—I loved doing those. You know, if life could be like it was in those movies, it would be beautiful, wouldn't it?
Doris: I had an organization called the Doris Day Pet Foundation for many years.
Doris: Tiny, my dog, was my invaluable companion when I was a teenager and I was on crutches for more than a year after a car accident with a train. Tiny never left my side. He understood my moods and gave me the kind of companionship that only a dog can bestow.
Doris: There were times when I wasn't always up. Everything could be calm and peaceful, then the next day the bottom dropped out. What can you do? Moan and groan and feel sorry for yourself? No, you pull yourself up by your bootstraps and you get on with life.
Doris: It's stupid to test on animals. They are not like us.
Doris: My first three marriages had all been unhappy and I vowed that, should there be a fourth, I would live with the man first.

Doris: Vulgarity begins when imagination succumbs to the explicit.
Doris: It's quite an experience to have filming done in your house. When they come in, they photograph every piece of furniture and where it is so they can get them back exactly where you had them. You'd never know they'd been here.
Doris: Any girl can look glamorous .... just stand there and look stupid.
Doris:Wrinkles are hereditary. Parents get them from their children.
