Quotation of Dorothy Hamill


I hated to read. My mother could not get me to read. I'm going through the same thing with my daughter now. I love to read now, but I don't remember reading.

Quotation of Dorothy Hamill

Quotation of Dorothy Hamill

Quotation of Dorothy Hamill


They're still considered Olympic eligibles, so there's never an issue whether they're going to turn pro or not. When they get to that level, money is never an issue. They make so much money now.
Quotation of Dorothy Hamill
