"When I was most unhappy I lashed out rather than whined. I was aggressive but curiously passive.  I had to be in charge, but I didn’t want to be.  I was hated, envied, and feared, and I was more vulnerable than anyone would care to believe.  It wasn’t difficult to discover that when people disliked me they really detested me.  And they couldn’t do any more about me than they could about death and taxes." - Bette Davis
