"The whole manner of Hepburn versus the relatively down-to-earth manner of Tracy and yet you sensed almost from the beginning that they would somehow get together, because of this contrast, because of the fact that there was something in each of them that saw something in the other and it developed. And sometimes it developed in odd ways, which is part of the charm and part of the fun."

When everything happens to you when you’re so young, you’re very lucky, but by the same token, you’re never going to have that same feeling again. The first time anything happens to you - your first love, your first success - the second one is never the same. September 16, 1924 - August 12, 2014
