"Not wounded, sir, but dead."

Oh, Katharine Hepburn has passed.

"I think most of the people involved in any art always secretly wonder whether they are really there because they're good-- or because they're lucky."
--Katharine Hepburn

Katharine Hepburn is one of my favorite actresses and persons, and it will always be so.

The Philadelphia Story (much of which I can recite by heart), Desk Set (I am a librarian after Bunny's own heart), Pat & Mike, Long Day's Journey into Night .....

More words from the Wise Woman:

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

* 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.

* Without discipline, there's no life at all.
