Quote of the Day (Truman Capote, on Those Who Made You Confident)

"Anyone who ever gave you confidence, you owe them a lot." —Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958) 

The image accompanying this post comes, of course, from the 1961 film version of Capote’s small gem of a novella. Though the author hadn’t pictured Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, I can’t imagine else in the role. Largely for that reason, the film (and, in a kind of glory reflecting back, the book) holds a special place in my heart, even though there are clear differences from its source material.
