“The Moon Is Reaching For Me”

I have many obsessions, I tend to have obsessions about movies and actors as well in my cycles. One cycle I have mentioned was Marilyn Monroe, I had almost every movie of hers, books, stamps, life size stand ups in my apartment, clock, calenders, posters framed they were all black and white and I thought it was the coolest thing ever in my apartment. My guy friends seemed to like it too. :-) But she is not the only one, though I did not collect as many items as I did with her I have had others where I collected books, picture books, movies, items like that with Cary Grant and Alfred Hitchcock along with a few billion others.

I tend to get a bit consumed.

I still love all of them along with several others but I do have an all time favorite and that would Audrey Hepburn. I adore her. I not only think that she is beautiful on the outside but she was an amazing woman with great character.  She had the most loving and caring heart. She did not seem to have the scandals as others did in her day. I know that she had great heart break also. She loved greatly, gave freely, and cherished this life very much based on things written and spoken about her along with her own words.

I am focusing on her today because she makes me smile.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Audrey Hepburn

I love all of her movies, even those that are not all that great. One that I truly enjoy is Charade with Cary Grant, they were fabulous together. There are so many that she was in that had the best ever quotes and I wish I could gather all of them and write them all down but I do not have time for that. However, I can share a few, here are some grand quotes that I do adore. Smiling at you all today. :-)

 

Quotes from movies.
