    • Liza Minnelli: It was no great tragedy being Judy Garland's daughter. I had tremendously interesting childhood years - except they had little to do with being a child.

    • Liza Minnelli: I'm always looking at the next thing. I'm too curious to look back ... it's very hard to be unhappy when you're curious and grateful. You're busy. You don't have time to be unhappy. My biggest talent is I know who is more talented than I am. I find them and I go to them, and I learn.

    • Liza Minnelli: My family's been in show-business since the 1700s. I traced them. I'm bred to this. Like a racehorse. A thoroughbred. Look at my parents, my God. But it was my curiosity that made me do this. Because you could also say, look at Frank Sinatra Jr. It's not like a natural thing that happens. You gotta work.

    • Liza Minnelli: It's a waste of time to think about what I should have done and what I didn't. I really believe in that. That's how I react to the if-onlys of life. To moan and groan about something I shouldn't have done, could have done, might have done ... who knows? It is what it is. You got what you got. I live my life one day at a time.

    • Liza Minnelli: I feel like I haven't done my best work yet. I feel like there's a world of possibilities out there.

    • Liza Minnelli: I remember playing in the Beverly Hills park with Mia Farrow and (Candy) Candice Bergen and Tisha Sterling and, while we sat in the sandbox, we could hear our English nannies talking about picture deals and costume direction and whose employer was going to win the Academy Award.

    • Liza Minnelli: My mother gave me my drive but my father gave me my dreams.

    • Liza Minnelli: Reality is something you rise above.

    • Liza Minnelli: Thank God for film, it can capture a moment and hold it there forever. If anyone ever asks you, "Who were they?" or "what made them so good?" I think a reel of film answers that question.

    • Liza Minnelli: I've got a good life, and I don't think anything can rock that anymore.
