SFH Favorite Collected Quotes – Katharine Hepburn


“If you obey all of the rules, you miss all of the fun.”
― Katharine Hepburn

Wikipedia will tell you that Katharine Houghton Hepburn, (1907-2003) American actress, was a leading lady in Hollywood for more than 60 years. We think of her as fiercely independent with a spirited personality.She appeared in a range of genres, from comedy to literary drama, and received four Academy Awards for Best Actress—a record for any performer. In 1999, Hepburn was named by the American Film Institute as the greatest female star in Hollywood history. How we all love her.

Only child that I am, I have broken a few rules in my time without concern. This quote by Katherine Hepburn is only one of the reasons she has meant so much to me. In my first novel, Greening of a Heart, I fashion a character after Hepburn as a nod to her career, and her independent spirit before women’s liberation was an idea. Don’t miss some fun!

    It is reassuring to know I’m not the only one who didn’t always follow the rules 🙂
