"it's better to burn out than to fade away."
Look at me. You want to come and live with me, right? You think this is easy for me? I’m trying to make this work. I’m doing it for you. You can have anything you want, but I don’t want you to touch that kid. You’ll leave him alone, do you under-fucking-stand me? Say yes.

”I’m not smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be! It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can’t.”
Rita Hayworth in You’ll Never Get Rich (1941)
