Happy 90th birthday, Betty Joan Perske, a.k.a Lauren Bacall (16.09.1924) - (12.08.2014) ∞ 

“I’m not ashamed of what I am - of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don’t like everything I know about myself, and I’ll never be satisfied, but nobody’s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me - what they will hold - but I’m open to suggestions.”

Gilmore Girls marks one of the few series that’s dominated by female characters, and is specifically about the lives of women, not the men around them. While love interests and male characters flutter around Rory and Lorelai, the Deans and the Lukes, they’re not the center of the drama.

"My father was very simple, but everyone respected him. The former president of India came to his funeral, even though we weren’t a wealthy or powerful family. Everyone saw my father as a peacemaker. Whenever there was a fight, he’d put himself in the middle and beg for it to stop. Once there were two groups of men fighting, and my father ran over to break up the fight. Someone threw a stone and it accidentally hit my father in the head. He was so respected, that as soon as the stone hit him, everyone went calm."
