I love Lucy.

23 Sep

I’m reading Lucille Ball’s autobiography. For inspiration. A manuscript discovered after her death, by her children. An excerpt:

“The important thing is to develop as a woman first, and a performer second. You won’t be happy, whatever you do, unless you’re comfortable with your own conscience. Keep your head up, keep your shoulders back, keep your self-respect, be nice, be smart. Before that brilliant hit performance came ten, fifteen, sometimes twenty years in the salt mines, sweating it out.”
