Because Grace commanded so much respect, there was always most total silence when she arrived on set, but she never distanced herself from others, and she was enormously friendly to everyone — no stuffy attitude, no star complex. As for her talents, Grace acted the way Johnny Weissmuller swam or Fred Astaire danced — she made it look easy. And she probably went through life being completely misunderstood, since she usually said exactly what she meant. (Cary Grant)

→ Grace, the Princess of Monaco
I would like to be remembered as someone who accomplished useful deeds, and who was a kind and loving person. I would like to leave the memory of a human being with a correct attitude and who did her best to help others.
^ This! :)

May 4, 1956: Prince Rainier and Princess Grace watch glass blowers at work spinning a delicate vase in the Gordhola glass blowing shops on the Balearic island of Mallorca. The honeymooning couple visited the shops where artisans carry on their work exactly as they have done for centuries, before boarding their yacht, Deo Juvante II, to continue their cruise.
