"I shan’t live very long. I find life so wonderful and so varied that I burn myself up always thinking, thinking, thinking. Soon after I should be thirty, I think you will have Theda’s pictures, but no Theda." — Theda Bara in 1915, explaining how occult readings had foreseen her early death. Of course, by the time Theda Bara (real name Theodosia Goodman) made this comment, she had already turned thirty. In fact, she almost lived to be seventy years old before passing away in 1955.
