“It’s nice getting older. A lot of people have been saying to me, ‘You are so much more confident and comfortable.’ There was a lot of energy being thrust at me then. I’m not someone who was solely desirous of becoming rich and famous. I can sit here and talk about my movies all day long. It’s what I’m most interested in — as selfish as that sounds. There was just something about the way everything was being ingested by people back then. There were aspects of it I wasn’t even aware of. Now I’ve learned to take it and have it be my own thing.”
“ Of course there’s negativity in every bodies life. It's how you deal with it. Do you feed into it and let it consume you?
or do you acknowledge that it's there deal with it and move on~
just cause I'm a positive person doesn't mean I have dumb smile on my
face ignoring shit that happens. But I do try to understand ~~

We all age. That’s one of the greatest tragedies in life. That every minute it is ending simultaneously. That every day we wake up, and we’re one step closer to thirty, forty, fifty, and it’s a lonely feeling. The feeling that every moment is the youngest we’ll ever be because there’s no possible way to stop time because without time we would not exist. It is the only constant force of nature along with change that makes us grow. So let’s grow, my darling. Let’s grow, my love. Let’s consider every day as a gift to take at least a single small step forward because that’s progress, that’s change, and any kind of change is powerful.
Happy birthday Ruth Elizabeth Davis aka Bette Davis!! ♥♥♥♥
(April 5, 1908 - October 6, 1989)
I think it’s a terrible hindrance for any female to have a lot of intelligence in private life. But I think in business, sometimes it’s even worse because there’s deep resentment. No question about it. From the male side of business. We all work for men. They’re the people in charge and I think they find women easier who haven’t the ability to think for themselves or stand up for themselves. One can make more enemies as a female with a brain, I think. No question about that, among the opposite sex. But I don’t think in business it matters whether you’re a man or a woman if you can do your job and have a brain.
My first memory of Bette Davis is of a powerful image burning on a small screen. When I was a girl, in the sixties, I’d come home from school and I’d turn on the old movie channel and plunk down on the couch with my girlfriends and take lessons from Bette Davis on how to scare the hell out of a man! Some thirty years later when I received the first annual Bette Davis lifetime achievement award at Boston University, I was very very very honored. For me, Bette Davis stood out from other actresses because of her signal audacity. The audacity I’m talking about is the bravery of her work. Bette Davis seemed willing. She even had an appetite for parts that were conventionally unappealing. She changed the requirement that actresses in the movies invariably be likable or attractive. She lifted the veil of appropriate behavior in women to expose what was scary, unexpected or ugly. In other words, to do what was appropriate for the character. - Meryl Streep
Bette Davis was so important to me as a young actress. At the age of 17 starting out in Gaslight, she was my inspiration. Her performance as Mildred in Of Human Bondage was my reference point. In her home Bette has a pillow and with it the embroidery says ‘old age is not for sissies’. For Bette Davis youth, middle age, no time of life is a place for sissies. She is an original. There has never been anyone, before or since, who could touch her. - Angela Lansbury
The great lesson I learned from Bette was her absolute dedication to getting everything just right. She used to spend hours studying the character she was going to play, then hours in make-up ensuring that her physical appearance was right for the part. I have always tried to put the same amount of work into everything I’ve done. - Olivia de Havilland
