I love quotes – always have, always will. In fact, I’m a collector of many things in life, INCLUDING quotes. We’re talking notebooks full of them, y’all.
When it comes to old Hollywood stars, I absolutely love it when they say kind, supporting things about one another. Anyone can say bitter, ugly, and nasty things about other people (and they so often do!) but, as far as I’m concerned, give me an actor, actress, or director who tries to build someone up rather than tear someone down.
I was reminded of just how much I love it when I read this quote by Lee Marvin about Humphrey Bogart earlier.
“In life and in movies I profoundly admired Bogart, both personally and professionally.” ~ Lee Marvin
Obviously, it shines a great light on Humphrey Bogart but it shines just as bright a light on Lee Marvin. Kindness does that for a person.
