Not only did this ABSURDLY ADORABLE little superstar pretty much singlehandedly save Fox and the movie industry during the Great Depression, she also
was one of the first (possibly the first) white actress to hold hands with a black man on screen as half of the first interracial dance couple on screen.
was largely responsible for making breast cancer okay to talk about after she had a press conference about her own mastectomy
became president of the Multiple Sclerosis Society and co-founded the International Federation of Multiple Sclerosis Societies, because her brother had MS
was the first female Chief of Protocol in US Government history
served as a US ambassador during the fall of Communism and was pretty much an all around international BADASS
And according to her husband, she was always true to herself. “Over 38 years I have participated in her life 24 hours a day through thick and thin, traumatic situations, exultant situations, and I feel she has only one personality. She would be catastrophic for the psychiatric profession. You can wake her up in the middle of the night and she has the same personality everybody knows. What everybody has seen for 60 years is the bedrock.” (x)

"You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul, but fractures to put their love into, is the most calming thing in this world."

And sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.
