Bessie-isms and Quotable for August 22, 2017


*If nothing else, going to buy clothes at the Goodwill Store will convince you that a lot of people are rather poor at buying new clothes, either having no idea what size they wear or what looks good on them. How do I know? Half the stuff at Goodwill has never been worn and still has tags on it.

*Plants don’t move around like animals do, so they waste no effort making choices. They grow or die where the begin, simple and direct. Humans spend the most effort flailing about, unable to decide what to do in contrast.


If you would be pungent, be brief; for it is with words as with sunbeamsthe more they are condensed, the deeper they burn.
