Happy Birthday Bette Davis!

(April 5, 1908 - October 6, 1989)

Acting should be bigger than life. Scripts should be bigger than life. It should all be bigger than life.

-Bette Davis

The truth is, I pretend to be a cynic, but I am really a dreamer who is terrified of wanting something she may never get.
Joanna Hoffman (via feellng)
Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. London is a teenager, an urchin, and in this hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.
John Berger, from Keeping A Rendezvous  (via woundedwillows)
He was now in that state of fire that she loved. She wanted to be burnt.
Anaïs Nin, Delta of Venus (via introspectivepoet)

I think the virtue I prize above all others is curiosity.
We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it’s our job to invent something better.
