Bessie-isms and Quotable for February 2, 2016


*When humans are denied the freedom to be individuals, they will divide themselves into smaller and smaller groups, shunning and avoiding others, and secretly seeking the most perfect of human groups; themselves, a group of one individual.

*While it can be wise to seek the advice of others, don’t allow them to push you in a way that your heart and soul finds improper or wrong. Not all advice is good advice, and you should never blindly listen to even a “wise man.”


Who of us is mature enough for offspring before the offspring arrive? The value of marriage is not that adults produce children but that children produce adults.
