Bessie-isms and Quotable for March 29, 2016


*We hunger for beauty, but too often ignore all the forms of it except for the physical. This is tragic, for the deepest and most profound forms of beauty are deep within the human soul.

*Anyone can marry once. It takes a lot more optimism to marry twice, and three or more times requires a severe form of mental impairment, likely related to learning.


He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.

Friedrich  Nietzsche

Bessie-isms and Quotable for March 28, 2016


*You don’t get to choose your relatives, which is a blessing for most people. They’d live as orphans if anyone had a vote!

*Some people think they’d like to hear God’s comments each day on how they’re doing. Frankly I’ll pass on that; I get yelled at by my spouse and boss enough each day as it is, and considering my life honestly, God wouldn’t be praising me very much either.


All of us have sufficient fortitude to bear the misfortunes of others.

Due de La Rochefoucauld
