"I am really rather like a beautiful Jersey cow, I have the same pathetic droop to the corners of my eyes."
"I’m afraid I can’t explain to you how I act — it’s entirely instinctive with me, I don’t analyze it — but I can tell you why. Because I find it enormously satisfying to pretend to be other people. And I pretend rather well. It’s as simple as that." (Deborah Kerr)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BABY!!!! I am so grateful to call you my mother and for all the love you’ve shown me through your movies, TV movies, TV appearances, and everything else! You are truly my inspiration in all that I do and I am so happy that you were on this earth! Now that you’re in heaven, because that’s obviously where you are :) you can watch over me from up above. You are my hero in more ways than I can count and I thank you for that. Always know that I look up to you and try every day to be more like you. I love you mama!
Deborah Kerr: September 30th, 1921 — ∞
Happy Birthday, Deborah Kerr (September 30, 1921 - October 16, 2007)I learned when I was a girl that the golden rule in life is not to fight about things that aren’t important. Save up your strength and fighting spirit for the time that something comes along that is important to you. Then fight … and fight hard.
