I think all this talk about age is foolish. Every time I`m one year older, everyone else is too.
Happy 94th Birthday Maureen FitzSimons!
Born August 17, 1920
"Above all else, deep in my soul, I’m a tough Irishwoman.
Being an Irishwoman means many things to me. An Irishwoman is strong and feisty. She has guys and stands up for what she believes in. She believes she is the best at whatever she does and proceeds through life with that knowledge. She can face any hazard that life throws her way and stay with it until she wins. She is loyal to her kinsmen and accepting of others. She’s not above a sock in the jaw if you have it coming. She is only on her knees before God. Yes, I am most definitely an Irishwoman.
My heritage has been grounding, and it has brought me peace. Being tough and strong have always been my most dominant characteristics, like a fire that burns deep within me. I have always believed that I can do anything I set my mind to, as long as I’m willing to make the necessary sacrifices. I have called upon this fire to achieve my goals and survive whenever I felt my world come crashing down around me. In this way, I am like many of the women I’ve played on-screen.”
- Maureen O’Hara
When everything happens to you when you’re so young, you’re very lucky, but by the same token, you’re never going to have that same feeling again. The first time anything happens to you - your first love, your first success - the second one is never the same.

I can’t believe betty passed away. I am in Poland at my grandmothers and I didn’t have any internet until now. I saw a short news report on Betty but they didn’t say she passed away, but I felt something was wrong and I immediately became scared and felt my stomach turning. Now I know she passed away and it’s one of the saddest days in my life. I can’t believe you’re gone betty. At least I was blessed to walk this earth while you were alive. I hope you’re together with bogie now :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDITH NORMA SHEARER
