Weekend Space – 19

What Meryl says…


…about being unapologically authentic.  It arrived for her with age.  It’s about being pure, beautiful you.   



I no longer have patience for certain things. Meryl Streep


“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”

Sounds good to me. Wishes for an illuminating, happy weekend everyone!

  1. And she is sooooo beautiful. Not a speck of plastic surgery. No scandal all these years. No rehab. It’s funny, all the things she says in this quote, as if she is finally going to live this way from now on, is how I have always seen her. No hypocrisy, never trivial, always the true professional. The best actor of all time in my opinion. And she can sing!!! And did I mention how beautiful she is? We are blessed to live in the same time as this woman. Thanks for sharing her inspiration with us today, Liza!

    1. I agree Juanita, that one thinks she was like this all the time. But she too was plagued with the usual human, female insecurities of “being in the world.” A good lesson for all of us: no one escapes the realities of life, of being human. All we can do is: be the best “I” that I can be. xo
