Personal Quotes by Lauren Graham
I get a delivery of a diet food during the week, which doesn’t mean that I don’t eat the occasional Krispy Kreme doughnut.- Lauren Graham
Acting is the most bizarre profession. You can stay in it for years and not really be in it and be waiting for someone to give you an opportunity. It’s like when I watch ‘American Idol’ and see people who have been told to believe in themselves at all costs: It’s not always a good idea.- Lauren Graham

Texting is not flirting, if you don’t care about me enough to say the words than that’s not love, I don’t like it!- Lauren Graham
