It’s not a very sane thing to try to be great all the time. You want to make something magical; you want to make something wonderful; you want to give to everybody; you want to heal people; you want to still be inspired. That’s not easy. I can cry myself to sleep because I’m not as great as Leonard Cohen, but who cares? Maybe you can’t be as great as some people, but it’s a tragedy when you don’t follow your dreams. So should I just shut the fuck up just because I’m not great? Or should I just do it because I must? It’s a complicated situation.

Eartha Kitt and James Dean photographed taking dancing lessons by Dennis Stock, c. 1955

“He sensed moments in Eartha’s performances when it seemed to him that everything she knew was fused directly into the moment, even things having nothing to do with her performing, he thought translated directly into one energy force-a magic connection.” He says: “Jimmy was convinced that Eartha had ‘special powers’ and knowledge she could deliver to him by some kind of osmosis…”

So Tumblr is filled with sweet little quips and such about how you should be with someone who accepts you for you and loves you and thinks you’re special and unique and all that but seems to forget that while we’re all sitting on our buns reading these and nodding vigorously, we have to be that, too. Relationships take two accepting, loving people to work. It’s too easy to forget that we have to be good people to find good people.
