Quote of the Day, 12/12/06: Hepburn

A few words from my favorite all-time actress, Katherine Hepburn.

Acting is the most minor of gifts and not a very high-class way to earn a living. After all, Shirley Temple could do it at the age of four.
...

If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.
...

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only what you are expecting to give — which is everything. What you will receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving.
...

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.
...

Life is hard. After all, it kills you.
...

It's a rather rude gesture, but at least it's clear what you mean.

Did you happen to catch the 2-part interview which recently aired on TCM? Fantastic.
