Bessie-isms and Quotable for October 31, 2014


*Even a complete loser has a “philosophy of life.” Philoshopy is worthless, if you lack ambition, motivation, smarts and common sense.

*Someone once claimed that the pen is mightier than the sword. Not very likely, when someone else uses a sword to lop off the hand that holds the pen. Never bring a pen to a sword fight!


I never wonder to see men wicked, but I often wonder to see them not ashamed.

Jonathan Swift

We Still Have Prostitutes?

How is this possible? Our wonderful hippie free love experiment was supposed to make such a thing unnecessary! Everybody was supposed to have easy sex, when ever and where ever they so desired. Naturally, like all grand social utopian ideas, it went right down the drain. Beautiful people did okay, but our less attractive? Sorry, you’re dating your hand.

Even worse, the upheavels have made people into emotive basket cases. Have you dated some of what’s out there? Dear God, who wants to sleep with crazy people, neurotic and insecure? You start dating, and hit two or three of these in a row, you’ll become a monk! Men seem quite naturally inclined to simply pay cash for sex. Men don’t require deep emotional connectivity to get laid. Names are optional too. Women seem to have a few more scrupples, or are daunted by the lack of male prostitutes! That doesn’t meant they’re all that happy, however.

The sad truth is this; we’re so confused and screwed up, men and women alike have no real idea how to be , well, men and women! I know, you ladies wanted men to be more emotive and sensitive, something like a cross between Fabio and a nice gay hairstylist. What you got is a bunch of trolls, too afraid to be men, and unwilling to be something else. Don’t laugh; half of you women have no clue what being female requires either! You end up being a cross between a gay hairdresser and an angry dock worker.

You should have figured out that men are not easily trainable by now. Have you? Our old roles managed to get the human race through a million years of evolution, but now we’re a mess. Men would, by and large, like to please you, and have you be happy. When you don’t know what that is, he’s screwed. You aren’t doing any better about pleasing him either, which is why the average relationship last three days now. Even when we occasionally do talk, we speak such an incomprehensibly different language, that neither sex has a clue about the other. This needs work, and if we don’t all die off, maybe in a century or two we’ll figure it out?


Bessie-isms and Quotable for October 30, 2014


*If not for change, we would live like tired old men, bored and unenthused, merely waiting for the end.

*It takes a brave man to admit to his woman that he’s slept with another woman. It takes a complete fool to tell her the other woman was better in bed; one likely with a strong death wish.


It is often better to not see an insult, than to avenge it.



Bessie-isms and Quotable for October 28, 2014


*You might occasionally teach something to a studend with little desire to learn, but there is absolutely no way to impart ambition to one who has no interest in it.

*Appeasment is for fools with no understanding of evil. Appeasment is giving a thief your neighbors TV and your microwave, in the hope that he won’t take your TV. God prefers you simply shoot the thief and be done with it.


The worst hatred is that of relatives.


Bessie-isms and Quotable for October 25 & 26, 2014


* Character is the measure of what your are, not what you wish to be, imagine you are or someday hope you’ll be. If you take stock of your character, and find it lacking, you must work hard to improve it. If you are of mostly good character you will. The ones of mostly bad character will decide to stick with what they’ve got.

*All the talent of God will do you no good if you lack the confidence to use it!


When you have robbed a man of everything, he is no longer in your power. He is free again.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Bessie-isms and Quotable for October 23, 2014


*More people might find happiness if they didn’t insist on clinging to their misery so completely.

*If you wish to shed your modesty, nothing will work so well as a couple of days in a hospital.


Don’t flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. The nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Bessie-isms and Quotable for October 21, 2014


*You will hear less gossip about yourself, if you behave more reasonably, much like you’ll be shot at less if you don’t hand out free ammo!

*A husband may feel like he is the owner of his wife, much like the sheep may imagine they control the shepherd.


Everyone in a crowd has the power to throw dirt; nine out of ten have the inclination.

William Hazlitt
