Quote of the Week

I think Oscar Wilde wrote a poem about a robin who loved a white rose. He loved it so much that he pierced his breast and let his heart's blood turn the white rose red. Maybe this sounds very sentimental, but for anybody who has loved a career as much as I've loved mine, there can be not short cuts.

-Mary Pickford

  1. I love this quote from Mary. I am loving the new book about her - "Mary Pickford - Queen of the Movies"- and am so looking forward to the movie about her.

  2. I also love the new book. It's so gorgeous! I'm surprised how much I'm learning too, since I read just about every Pickford book I could find for the blogathon. I don't tend to like biopics, but I've got a good feeling about the movie. It looks like they really care about getting things right.
