Cate Blanchett in Manifesto (2015). 


“Art civilizes us and it connects us and activates us. It’s really important to connect with compassion and with stories about people who are different from us.”

Happy Birthday, Cate Blanchett!

Understand that because our brains have been designed by evolution to need and to respond positively to kindness, it is not a question of deserve. It is simply a question of treating our brain wisely and feeding it appropriately. For example, it’s  not  a  question  of  whether  you  deserve  to  give  your  body vitamins  or  not,  one  simply  does  it  because  it’s  sensible.  This  is  the  same  with  kindness.  It is not a self-indulgence any more than training your body to be fit and healthy is self-indulgent. It  is  not  an issue  of  whether  we  deserve  it;  it’s  an  issue  of  understanding how our mind  works and then practicing how to feed it things to help it work optimally.

Happy Birthday QUEEN Cate Blanchett 

I’ve always said this about Cate as an actress, ever since seeing her in ‘Electra‘ in her last year of drama school (at Australia’s National Institute of Dramatic Art): She has that ability to be extrememly forthright and powerful and vulnerable, all within a flickering moment. That combination could earmark her for greatness. - Geoffrey Rush
