We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers - but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.
—  Katharine Hepburn

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

Her energy was phenomenal. I’d get to the studio at seven and she’d been there since six, riding the grounds on her bicycle. She has a wonderful wild and lunatic passion for everything she does. It is a tremendously infectious sort of thing and she creates a state of excitement. 

-Anthony Harvey


"The whole manner of Hepburn versus the relatively down-to-earth manner of Tracy and yet you sensed almost from the beginning that they would somehow get together, because of this contrast, because of the fact that there was something in each of them that saw something in the other and it developed. And sometimes it developed in odd ways, which is part of the charm and part of the fun."
