Bessie-isms and Quotable for January 23 & 24, 2016


*Young women tend to shun a gentleman, preferring the excitement of the rogue. After enough abuse and misery, they eventually yearn for a gentleman, but find such disinclined to consider them in their worn and scared condition.

*The hunger in the belly is usually easy to fill compared to the hunger of the heart or soul.


Destiny is not  a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

William Jennings Bryan
