Bessie-isms and Quotable for January 28, 2016

Bessie-isms:

*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!

Quotable:

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.

Lewis Mumford
