Bessie-isms and Quotable for November 29 & 30


*Our terrorist enemies denounce us as godless infidels. Go watch TV, see Springer, Povich, MTV, most movies, and then try to argue that we aren’t? Not so easy, is it?

*Receiving things you haven’t earned will ruin you, unless it is undeserved love and kindness.


Laziness grows on people; it begins in cobwebs and ends in iron chains.

Thomas Fowell Buxton

Bessie-isms and Quotable for November 26, 2014


*A woman who is confident and self assured will make a man nervous, but he will desire her as he does no other.

*To possess the least sliver of hope, is to keep despair at bay. Only when the last tiny vestige of hope is gone, can despair enter in.


It takes your enemy and your friend, working together to hurt you to the heart; the one to slander you, and the other to get the news to you.

Mark Twain

Bessie-isms and Quotable for November 25, 2014


*The finest gift, one  most highly appreciated is one chosen from intimate knowledge of the recipient, chosen to be highly personal and appropriate. However, cash runs a close second, it never ends up on a closet shelf!

*Only a person with time to kill will stoop to gossiping. Apparently we aren’t nearly busy enough, with useful tasks, are we?


The injury we do to others, and the one we suffer are not weighed in the same scales.


Bessie-isms and Quotable for November 24, 2014


*If you wish to know which friends are worth keeping, try being honest with them about who you really are. If they don’t run away, they might be good for the long term.

*When you battle evil there can be no peace until the evil is defeated. You can never negotiate with evil, and find peace. Peace comes only when evil is completely destroyed. Kill it, don’t try to hug it.


The empty vessel makes the greatest sound.

William Shakespear

Bessie-isms and Quotable for November 21, 2014


*Whether you desire the same or the opposite sex, understand this; you are not complete without another to love.

*How can you respect someone who is so weak of will that your pathetic arguments might cause them to abandon their sincere beliefs and positions?


Very often the only thing that comes between a charming man and a charming woman is the fact that they are married to each other.

Gaston Caillavert

Bessie-isms and Quotable for November 19, 2014


*Ladies, do not cry over your physical imperfections, real or imagined. No woman has ever been loved solely for her beauty.

*Never pass up a chance to learn new things. God is fond of rearranging your life when you get to comfortable, and you never know what will be useful later!


You can take better care of your secret than another can.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bessie-isms and Quotable for November 18, 2014


*Ladies, never ask a man if he thinks your butt is too big. As long as you share it eagerly, he’ll be happy. If you criticize it constantly, he’ll start to dislike it too!

*You constantly put off calling friends, saying I love you to someone dear. Why? Any moment it might be too late. Time waits for no one!


If a man thinks about his physical or moral state, he usually discovers that he is ill.

Johann Goethe
