About Sarah Bernhardt

Sarah Bernhardt, the French stage and silent film actress known as the Divine Sarah, was born in Paris in 1844 as Rosine Bernard, the illegitimate daughter of a Jewish courtesan. She began her acting career at age 13 and quickly rose to international stardom. Oscar Wilde wrote the play Salome for her. After her right leg was amputated in 1915, she continued to perform onstage with a prosthetic limb. She was very close to her only child, her son Maurice. She died in 1923.

    Beautiful about Sarah Bernhardt, Beth. I have to chuckle about the last sentence in the quote. I know that it means that by doing and experiencing our lives will be enriched.

    The idea that she used the word spending maybe gives me hope about the bailout? Smile
