“How will you fill your empty pages? I pray that all you young people, middle-aged people, and old people like me live each day and enjoy each day, and when God calls you, that you answer Him and go willingly. But leave your mark on the world, on your children and on all the people that you leave behind so that they will be brave and leave brave memories.”
–Maureen O’Hara (1920-2015), concluding her 2004 memoir ‘Tis Herself

This is beautiful. I clearly need to read her autobiography.
I love reading memoirs! I have read Lauren Bacall’s and Shirley Temple Black’s; now, I have another on To Read list. Awesome lady!
