“I´m not ashamed of what I am—of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don´t like everything I know about myself, and I´ll never be satisfied, but nobody´s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me —what they will hold—but I´m open to suggestions.”

HAPPY 88TH BIRTHDAY BETTY BACALL!
