Bessie-isms and Quotable for August 20 & 21, 2016


*Most humans are eager to declare any original idea they didn’t think of as being wrong, stupid, useless or blaspheme.

*Beware the person eager to smash the institutions of the past, who first offers no sound idea of a replacement. He is no visionary or revolutionary, but is much like a vandal or arsonist, bringing destruction just to watch the fires burn.


It is a naïve wine without any breeding, but I think you’ll be amused by its presumption.

James Thurber
