"In the name of the dead I accuse you of aborting your duty as a human being. I accuse you of letting love go by, of neglecting your duty to be happy. Of living in evasion and subterfuge and resignation. You should be sentenced to death. You will be sentenced to solitude.”

"A horrible sentence.”

Anthony Perkins & Ingrid Bergman in Goodbye Again, (1961)

Ingrid and Italy
  “Do you know that after lunch, I simply must have my siesta? Did you ever hear of such a thing in Hollywood?   I’ve willingly succumbed to the Italian way of living. Here, you pause for breath. In fact, here you take time to breathe deeply. You don’t have to be running around from one place to another, frantic, to know that you’re alive. You don’t have to be active, active, active every minute of the day and night to know that you’re really in the swim.”

  “Ingrid Bergman is a Nordic natural who is going to make things a little tough for Hollywood’s synthetic glamour girls from now on out. Ingrid doesn’t use make-up, false eyelashes, trick hair-dos, seminude evening wear, or a so-tired-of-it-all face.   She doesn’t need them. She’s fresher, more beautiful in her unredecorated state, more unspoiled and real than any screen newcomer in a year of Sundays.   She’s a beauty who blushes, smiles and twinkles her eyes without realizing it — and the effect is devastating.” (1940s press)
