“I have not been that wise. Health I have taken for granted. Love I have demanded, perhaps too much and too often. As for money, I have only realized its true worth when I didn’t have it.”
Hedy Lamarr (9 November 1914 – 19 January 2000) was an American actress and inventor, celebrated for her great beauty, who was a contract star of MGM’s “Golden Age.” Mathematically talented, she and composer George Antheil invented an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.
