Love According to Kate


“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only what you are expecting to give — which is everything…You give because you love and cannot help giving.”

…so said the woman who epitomized the ‘modern woman’ of the 20th Century. Katherine Hepburn, one of the most recognizable actresses of her day, was “outspoken, assertive, athletic, and wore trousers before it was fashionable for women to do so”. She “refused to conform to societal expectations of women”, and yet she so loved a man that she was willing to change who she was, in order to please him. She was a study in contradictions. The above quote was in reference to her love for fellow actor, Spencer Tracy…but I think I will end with a different Katherine Hepburn quote:

“Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.”
