Charlotte Chandler‘s lated, I Know Where I’m Going: Katharine Hepburn, A Personal Biography. At the opening of the first chapter, she says:

What I meant by it was that I wanted to be independent, to separate myself from all others so I would never feel the pain I felt when Tom left me.’ (via LA Times)
