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.

I think the reason people have an affection for me now is in a kind of a way I must have lived a life that a lot of women think would be a nice life to have lived. They think its dignified, but they think its free. I’ve done what i wanted to do. They don’t bother to think they have five children and I haven’t. I have brains enough to know you cannot have it all.

Katharine Hepburn (May 12, 1907-June 29, 2003)
