1[on Greta Garbo]: I think she was the dullest woman I ever met.
2[After purchasing two Renoir paintings for Greta Garbo at auction]: She was the tightest, most miserly figure who ever lived. She paid for the paintings that day, but never paid me my commission. I never asked for it. I knew she was a tightwad. She used people and rarely gave anything back.
