I was looking up some info on the actress, Ruth Gordon, and discovered that besides acting she also did some screenwriting. Ruth and her husband, Garson Kanin, received Academy Award nominations for two of their scripts, Adam's Rib and Pat and Mike; both were Hepburn-Tracy movies.

Ruth Gordon also had a few things to say, and here are some quotes:

“Courage is like a muscle strenghthened by its use.”

“To get it right, be born with luck or else make it. Never give up. Get the knack of getting people to help you and also pitch in yourself. A little money helps, but what really gets it right is to never -- I repeat -- never under any conditions face the facts.”

“So easy to fall into a rut, isn't it? Why should ruts be so comfortable and so unpopular?”

“Why? Because I believe I will. If you believe, then you hang on. If you believe, it means you've got imagination, you don't need stuff thrown out for you in a blueprint, you don't face facts -- what can stop you?”

I love it! It's good to know the facts, even better to know I don't have to face them. Don't let facts get in the way of your faith.

Love, Khouzhan Lucy
