"Life is hard. After all, it kills you."
"The thing about life is that you must survive. Life is going to be difficult, and dreadful things will happen. What you do is move along, get on with it, and be tough. Not in the sense of being mean to others, but being tough with yourself and making a deadly effort not to be defeated."
"If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married."
"Everyone thought I was bold and fearless and even arrogant, but inside I was always quaking."
"Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give - which is everything"
— Katharine Hepburn
Sometimes when I know I'm lacking way too much confidence and feeling insecure, I ask myself "what would Katharine Hepburn do?" and it really does help.
