"I’m learning to stop forcing things, stop trying to meet life in a head-on crash. Nobody can wipe out his mistake; you can only learn from them and go on from there. And so, perhaps, I have at last grown up. I’m learning to take myself as show people know how to take others, the good with the bad. I’m people, too. If I can remember that, I’ll be all right." — Judy Garland (1950).
