Freethinker Sunday Sermonette: Kate

I like old movies and sometimes watch them on Sundays. While I'm not a big Katherine Hepburn fan, I do like her well enough. But then I don't know much about her, although the glimpse that emerges in Scorsese's movie The Aviator is intriguing.

I ran across this quote, uttered towards the end of her long life.
In an interview in the October 1991 Ladies' Home Journal that was advertised as her "most candid" ever, Hepburn said,

"I'm an atheist, and that's it. I believe there's nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for each other."
[LHJ, October 1991, p.215; via Celebatheists]
My sentiments. Exactly.
