Bessie-isms and Quotable for January 28, 2016


*Having a doctor tell you to drop your pants and bend over as they pull on a glove may not cure you or make you feel better, but it will make you wish you did!

*You wish, when being interviewed for a job,  to be considered talented and valuable, but not a potential slave. The company may well be a slave galley, and will be interested in getting the strongest slave for the least money. Good luck with that interview!


In their worship of the machine, many Americans have settled for something less than a full life, something that is hardly even a tenth of life, a hundredth of life. They have confused progress with mechanization.
