“Soft and sleek – and looking – looking…Sloe-eyed – moving through the woods on a carpet of wet brown leaves (or anyway a carpet – the best – and long – and deep)…No sound – only a rhythmic beat…Honey dripping from her temples…Eyes unblinking – glinting green – challenging…Her texture bread-dough soft – and smooth and tawny – rising alive…He has penned in a lioness…No claws for those she loves – babies – mate – and even friends – a few…The best – the best (what the hell – they must be – they’re mine)…You are subdued by her lavish enthusiasm – lulled by the repetition of your own extraordinary virtues…You are king among mice – secure – remarkable – you have no equal…You belong to the kingdom of her children – she will protect you…But if you do not belong: look out…No zulac from the bazaar has a sharper knife – can use it without pause – direct – piercing…Love or Hate…Yes or No…Good or Bad…Victorian clarity…Soft – sun-serene surface – surface – surface – and under it – Woman.” — Katharine Hepburn

”I think Betty’s enduring appeal flows not just from her skills, but from her inner strength of character. From the moment when I first spotted that lean and lanky seventeen-year-old in the theatre in New York, I’ve been looking, as millions around the world have, at a remarkable woman. After so many years, I can’t explain our friendship, nor would I try - for a tough broad, she blushes easily. Let me just say that I celebrate our time together, I have the joy of her friendship and we all have the joy of her talent - We’re all still looking, Betty.”— Gregory Peck

“Charlie and Ann Lederer gave a party for the Shah of Iran. When the incumbent of the Peacock Throne complimented Lauren Bacall by saying, ‘You were born to dance, Miss Bacall,’ she replied with gusto, ‘You bet your ass, Shah.”— David Niven

“Lauren Bacall has cinema personality to burn. She has a javelin-like vitality, a born dancer’s eloquence of movement, a fierce female shrewdness, and a special sweet-sourness. With these faculties, plus a stone-crushing self-confidence and a trombone voice, she manages to get across the toughest girl Hollywood has dreamed of in a long, long while.” — James Agee

“I think that sometimes she doesn’t realize how much I love her and respect her and respect what she is, as a woman and as an actress and what she’s contributed to her profession and her world. And I think that she needs to know that.” — Stephen Bogart

“I think the qualities that my mother gave me include intelligence, humor, sensitivity, the ability to scrutinize people. I feel she gave me her sense of power and her sense of strength as she deals with the world around her. And her contribution to women and to women’s issues in addition to being to a loving mother. She has also, just as a woman, been a great example for me.” — Leslie Bogart

Betty Joan Perske aka Lauren Bacall / September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014

Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.

People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.

Day 7: the laughter

“I always find it very funny that my character so rarely smiles — let alone laughs — on the show, and yet I find it very difficult to keep a straight face,” says the London-born Panjabi in her charming British accent. “I always end up with tears of laughter and my dear, wonderful makeup artist is constantly having to retouch my makeup.” -Archie

“I just want to have a completely adventurous, passionate, weird life.” — Jeff Buckley, on moving to New York    (via terrible)

“While we’re looking at people, let’s look at Betty. She and Bogie seemed to have the most enormous opinion of each other’s charms, and when they fought it was with the utter confidence of two cats locked deliciously in the same cage.” —Katharine Hepburn
