“You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.”
Mary Pickford (April 8, 1892 – May 29, 1979)
Here’s to fresh starts and getting back up whenever we have fallen.
Mary Pickford was a silent film star who was considered to be Hollywood’s first superstar. She had her first film role in 1909 and starred in her first “talkie” in 1929. Like many silent film stars she was unable to translate her silent film popularity into talking films. She appeared in her last film in 1933 but continued to produce films. She was a co-founder of United Artists and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
In honor of her April 8 birthday, I select a quote of hers for this week’s Word Crush Wednesday quote.
