We relish news of our heroes, forgetting that we are extraordinary to somebody too. Helen Hayes
I LOVE the above quote!!!
Helen Hayes was nicknamed the "First Lady of the American Theatre" and was one of twelve people who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony Award. Hayes has also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honor, from President Ronald Reagan and awarded the National Medal of Arts.
Here are some quotes from Helen Hayes....
If you rest, you rust.
Age is not important unless you're a cheese.
Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up... a lot of people don't have the courage to do it.
The hardest years in life are those between ten and seventy.
and one from her husband...
When Charles first saw our child Mary, he said all the proper things for a new father. He looked upon the poor little red thing and blurted, "She's more beautiful than the Brooklyn Bridge." –
