rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

"I remember we had a little walk in his park, and I was so full of love and joy to be with him that I cried. He said, ‘You must not cry, I will always look after you’. He had no fear. No fear whatsoever. I miss his presence, but I’ve got the feeling he’s still around me." - Astrid Kirchherr, on her last time seeing George in mid 2001.

‘‘You have to believe in yourself. You can’t just accept what other people say all the time, otherwise you’ll become them, and not yourself.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE BUSH !!

When I hear The Kick Inside now, I still wish I’d written those songs. I don’t belive in God, but if I did, her music would be my bible. She should be more treasured than the Beatles. That she isn’t is probably down to her own personality, because she can walk away from everything. And I respect her for that. Just to live your life, and not play the game - to me, that’s success.  Tricky

Dolores del Rio: A Mexican from a affluent family, Dolores set out to become an actress after her family lost their wealth after the Mexican Revolutionary War. She may not be a household name, but in Mexico she is the quintessential face of femininity and is considered something of mythical status throughout Latin America. Even Marlene Dietrich considered her friend Dolores “The most beautiful woman”. Before Rita Hayworth, it was Dolores that was wrapped around Orson Welles arm. She was popular with American audiences in the 20s, 30s and 40s, and starred alongside Fred and Ginger, Anthony Quinn, Sophia Loren, James Stewart and even Elvis Presley. But once it became hard to find good roles and make box office hits in Hollywood, she left to Mexico to revive her film career. She didn’t come back to Hollywood until the 60s. (X)
