Katharine Hepburn: Her 10 greatest personal quotes ever

“There are no laurels in life . . . just new challenges,” said Katharine Hepburn, who, ironically, reigns as queen of Hollywood’s most treasured laurel. She won the Oscar crown four times, all for Best Actress: “Morning Glory” (1933), “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” (1967), “The Lion in Winder” (1968) and “On Golden Pond” (1981).

Here are more of Katharine Hepburn’s 10 greatest personally quotes ever:

“I don’t regret anything I’ve ever done; As long as I enjoyed it at the time.”

“Life is hard. After all, it kills you.”

“Not everyone is lucky enough to understand how delicious it is to suffer.”

“There are no laurels in life . . . just new challenges.”

“Acting is a nice childish profession – pretending you’re someone else and at the same time selling yourself.”

“Enemies are so stimulating.”

“I’m an atheist, and that’s it. I believe there’s nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for each other.”

“What makes you a star is horsepower.”

“Acting is the most minor of gifts and not a very high-class way to earn a living. After all, Shirley Temple could do it at the age of four.”
