Quote by Katherine Hepburn..

"If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased." - Katherine Hepburn

Yes, one person is pleased - You!  Trying to please others sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't...Sometimes it is worth it and sometimes it is not.  But being true to yourself and your own path makes one authentic.  There has to be balance, though.  We want to be liked and this is often the motive for pleasing others.  When being liked is the motive, we are giving away our power..When the motive is unselfish and not based on our being liked, it is another matter entirely.

I always liked Katherine Hepburn.  She had a unique personality and character.  One of the best compliments I ever got was from an employer who said I reminded him of her!  It still makes me happy to think of that...
