Frances Sternhagen and Marian Seldes

We have all made mistakes. We have all been a person we can no longer recognize or see as entirely admirable. It’s over. The best apology for any past behavior that was…unpleasant…is to live as a better person. To toss away not only the memory of that person, but all the actions you now regret.

From a conversation in 1989
