Bessie-isms and Quotable for July 22, 2016


*Lying is the easy, quick response to awkward questions, accusations and embarrassment. It’s fast, but seldom wise, as you usually find out in due time, to much embarrassment and misery.

*There are no simple solutions to complex problems, even though all politicians will tell you there is, and that they possess it. Frankly, there’s seldom a simple solution to a simple problem!


Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith.

Paul Tillich
