Bessie-isms and Quotable for February 12, 2016

Bessie-isms:

*Isn’t it amazing how much society condemns the promiscuous young woman, the slutty female, but yet such a one never lacks for men eager to be with her? One might imagine that the criticism comes more from lack of similar opportunity and jealousy than from a deep sense of moral outrage.

*Always choosing the path of least resistance, the easy way, will almost always lead to failure and ennui. The best things life offers are all hidden and obscure, and you need to be a bit of an explorer, hacking through jungle to find them.

Quotable:

Success has made failures of many men.
