List of Katharine Hepburn quotes.

I'm an atheist and thats it.I believe there's nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for each other.


If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.


Life is to be lived. If you have to support yourself, you had bloody well better find some way that is going to be interesting. And you don't do that by sitting around wondering about yourself.
