Lena Horne 1917-2010

Lena Horne Quotes:
“It's so nice to get flowers while you can still smell the fragrance”

“You have to be taught to be second class; you're not born that way.”

"I was unique in that I was a kind of black that white people could accept. I was their daydream. I had the worst kind of acceptance because it was never for how great I was or what I contributed. It was because of the way I looked".


  1. No one could sing "Stormy Weather" like Lena Horne. It's a song that is so sweet; so haunting. What a life's journey that lady had! She'll be missed.

  2. I adored her voice and her personnality: she was a real Lady! Like Eileen, I think we will miss her. Thank you for that"hommage".

  3. She was one a of a kind for sure, and definitely FIRST class all the way!
