I am a very introverted person who enjoys spending time alone, but l do occasionally like to pop out of my bubble and meet other people. When l connect with people, l connect very deeply. I’m not very surface, l can’t cold talk. I always get straight to the core: l want to know what their biggest defeat is or such like. @ Lykke Li (via realdwntomars)

I accepted the way it was— life, that is. I had to, I had to deal with it one day at a time. Everything seems worse at night, with daylight comes hope for a brighter day. And on reflection, I’m not as pessimistic as I thought. If I were I’d have given up years ago, but I will never give up. I refuse to. Isn’t hope that incredible, wonderfully demented thing? @ Lauren Bacall

Sketch of #LaurenBacall


It’s as true in today’s Hollywood as it was 70 years ago: There’s nothing as sexy as… Lauren Bacall.
Not just because of how she slinked through her debut film, 1944’s “To Have and Have Not,” with a voice that sounded like whiskey neat and the most come-hither directions ever put on film (“You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow”). Nor because of her long hair that seemed to shine even in the darkened corners of noir drama.
It was all that, yes, but it was also a word associated with men: swagger. Bacall had it in spades, and woe to the poor fathead or fall guy who considered her just another dame.New York Daily News
