life inspiration ~ katharine hepburn

i've always been a huge fan of katharine hepburn.  to me, she always seemed the epitome of what it means to be a woman - strong, independent, humorous, fashionable, cheeky, glamorous, a feminist, never taking life too seriously, and incredibly wise.  i love that she chose never to have children and did many of her own movie stunts {something that was almost unheard of from actresses in her day}.  
  
yup, she was one incredible lady! so this week i am soaking up as much katharine hepburn inspiration as i can.  here are some of my favorite quotes and images from her life:



who do you find inspirational for this big thing called life?

  6. KIM! I've missed your blog these past couple of weeks that I've been away! First off, thank you for being such a wonderful blog friend!

    I particularly love that last quote by katharine hepburn about love. It's something I learned through being in a relationship. When you love someone, you want to give all that you have to that person. When you love someone, you sacrifice your needs for theirs. When you love someone, you realize that you don't really need to go to that Thai restaurant because Italian isn't so bad either. When you love someone, you don't mind passing up that chick flick for an action movie because it means you can snuggle up closer!

  15. k.h. is definitely an inspiration for me. I love how she lived life by her own rules. I find women(and men) who are willing to bounce to their own beat super inspirational. That's why I like you so much, K. You are truly your own person and inspires others to be their own person, too.
