Have to touch myself to pretend you’re there
Your hands were on my hips, your name is on my lips
Over over again, like my only prayer

“I leave before being left. I decide.”
“It is better to be unfaithful, than faithful without wanting to be.”
"The best day of my life was a night."
"They may call me a sinner, but I am at peace with myself."
"When I love, I do it without counting. I give myself entirely. And each time, it is the grand love of my life."
"I’m a girl from a good family who was very well brought up. One day I turned my back on it all and became a bohemian."
"My wild and free side unsettled some, and unwedged others."
"Nobody has any security in loving me."
"I am against marriage, and I don’t give a fig for society."
"I am no mother, and I won’t be one."
"I know what sin is. "
"I am shocking, impertinent, and insolent - that’s how it is."
"I knew I had to be the best at something, otherwise I would be nothing. I knew I wanted the world to know about Brigitte Bardot.”
