"If it meant something to her, she wanted it around her it was not the artistic value, it was the value to her, and obviously this chair meant something to her whether it was in superb condition, or a little threadbare."

"as much as hepburn loved all of these items, she was adamant in her will that they be sold, figuring that money would mean more to her family than mementos."
