"The family with us was strong and remains strong. Their problems are my problems and vice versa. We're sort of a 'group' going through the world together. Isn't that wonderful? I feel so lucky. I feel cared for and I have always felt cared for... I cannot say anything in detail about my sisters and brothers. They are so much a part of me that I simply know that I could not have been me without them. They are my 'box' - my protection."
- Katharine Hepburn, Me: Stories of My Life
