Kelly in one sentence: Grace was a beautiful American actress, a natural beauty and a true lady.

Quotes:

Women’s natural role is to be a pillar of the family.

Getting angry doesn’t solve anything.

I don’t want to be married to someone who feels inferior to my success because I make more money than he does.

I avoid looking back. I prefer good memories to regrets.

I am basically a feminist. I think that women can do anything they decide to do.

I would like to be remembered as someone who accomplished good deeds, and who was a kind and loving person.

I would like to leave a memory of a woman with a correct attitude who did her best to help others.

Emancipation of women has made them lose their mystery.

I would much rather being known for my abilities then my looks.

One of my few regrets is that I wasn’t able to develop fully as an actress.

I think I actually hate Hollywood. I have a few friends there but many acquaintances.

I came to success very quickly. Maybe it was too quickly to value its importance.

Children need the love and attention of their mother the most.
