From now on Im going to speak like an anime protagonist giving an inspirational speech, because….. *clenches fist* because there are people who believe in me! People who are constantly giving me strength! And even if they’re not with me right now…. *faint smile at the ground*…. They’re always sending me their wishes a-and I want to be able to give them courage too!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARBARA STANWYCK!
JULY 16TH 1907 - FOREVER
"We are all very privileged people. The good lord gave us that much more - to walk ahead of somebody. And he showed us how to do it, and we did it. But we’re survivors. But we didn’t do it on our own, we didn’t do it on our own. The man upstairs was pushing me.”
Happy Birthday Virginia Katherine McMath Ginger Rogers
16 July 1911 - 25 April 1995"When I was working with Ginger, it was like heaven on earth." - Fred Astaire, 1973"I don’t think there’s ever been anyone like Ginger, never. She was heaven." - Stanley Donan, 1988Ginger Rogers was a star in every sense of the word. Talented, intelligent and stylish, she was everything the public wanted in the midst of the Depression, when she got her break. After starting out in musicals, she was paired with Fred Astaire, with whom she made ten films, and the two would become one of the most iconic film couples of all time. Yet her career extended far beyond these films. She was a skilled comedic and dramatic actress, earning herself an Academy Award for her performance in Kitty Foyle (1940). She strived to be the best that she could, and there’s no doubt that she did just that. Still as enchanting today as she was over eighty years ago, she is one of the most important stars to ever come out of Hollywood."The most important thing in anyone’s life is to be giving something. The quality I can give is fun, joy and happiness. This is my gift." - Ginger Rogers
