5 Quotes & 1 Video via the Original Hipster Feminist: Katharine Hepburn.

 

5 Quotes & 1 Video: Katharine Hepburn.

My mother loved her, and looked up to her.

My mother was (and is) a tomboy. Katharine wore the pants. She talked loudly, she spoke eloquently, the love affair of her life was an unconventional one that didn’t fit in a box. She was sad, and wild.

She aimed to please herself.

Love her. She grew up not far from me. It's true (according to her bio) that her relationship with Spencer Tracy was tumultuous as he had a drinking problem. Don't know about any abuse allegations though.

She said, "love isn't about what you expect to get but what you're willing to give." In her own case, she said, that was everything.
