Google on Wednesday honored Shirley "Little Miss Miracle" Temple, Hollywood's iconic child star, with an animated doodle.

On this day in 2015, the Santa Monica History Museum opened a special exhibit, called “Love, Shirley Temple,” featuring a collection of her rare memorabilia.

Shirley Jane Temple, born on April 23, 1928, in Santa Monica, California, captivated the nation when she landed a role in the 1934 toe-tapping musical “Stand Up And Cheer.” She starred in a dozen films in 1934, including “Bright Eyes” – in which she performed one of her most famous routines “On the Good Ship Lollipop.”

Temple became the first child star to receive an Academy Award at just six years old. Throughout her teenage years, Temple continued to star in films. In 1958, Temple narrated the eponymous “Shirley Temple’s Storybook,” a children’s television series – something that marked her final foray in American entertainment.

In 2006, Temple received her Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild.

Here are some quotes, courtesy Brainy Quote, to share on this day:

1. “Don't forget to tell your favorite people that you love them.”

2. “I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.”

3. “Any star can be devoured by human adoration, sparkle by sparkle.”

4. “When I was 14, I was the oldest I ever was. I've been getting younger ever since.”

5. “Be brave and clear. Follow your heart and don't be overly influenced by outside factors. Be true to yourself.”

6. “Delay and indecision are first weapons in the armory of moviemakers.”

7. “If you hear someone scream, you shouldn't close the drapes. You should help. You've got to try.”

8. “Visiting old haunts is hard on memory. Things shrink, change, and disappear.”

9. “Intentions often melt in the face of unexpected opportunity.”

10. “I don’t like to do negatives. There are always pluses to things.”
