Bessie-isms and Quotable for July 25, 2017

Bessie-isms:

*If you aren’t careful, and judicious in what obligations you take on, your responsibilities will become your prison cell.

*If you can’t do better than a half assed excuse, just tell the truth.

Quotable:

Man knows at last that he is alone in the universe’s unfeeling immensity. His destiny is nowhere spelled out, nor is his duty.

Jacques Monod

Bessie-isms and Quotable for July 20,2017

Bessie-isms:

*If you aren’t willing to put some effort into crafting an excuse, just admit the truth and take your licks. You’ll be regarded better than you will if you do a poor job of excuse making.

*We love our pets easier than we do people. Animals are more honest and take less effort to understand.

Quotable:

Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it, piece by piece, by thought, choice, courage and determination.

H. Jackson Browne
