All I know about getting something that you want is that there are three essential things: wanting, trying and getting the opportunity, the breaks. None works alone without the others. Wanting is basic. Trying is up to you. And the breaks - I do know this, they always happen.
Happy birthday Eileen Evelyn Greer Garson!

Happy 110th Birthday Greer Garson | 29 september, 1904 - 6 april, 1996
Why did I become an actress? I think because I am fascinated by the variety and scope of human experience. I am not content to live just one existence. I have always had a strong imagination and in my roles I feel that I live other lives. And the hazards and disappointments of an acting career and the solemn dissuasions of all my friends and advisers were a challenge. It has not been easy, but I believe that the best kind of success is not won easily and that a few hard knocks on the way are good for the soul. When I look back on some of my bitterest disappointments I realize that, in the long run, they were really strokes of good fortune. Things eventually turned out far better than if I had achieved what seemed so desperately important at the moment. So I believe that as one door closes, another will open.
Happy Birthday to the actress I am currently obsessing madly over, Greer Garson! <3 xx
