Bessie-isms and Quotable for July 29 & 30, 2017

Bessie-isms:

*Living in the modern world we have lost all concept of things our ancestors had to live with, like encountering a snake when you get up to pee in the dark of night.

*The stars are beautiful, but remember, they were just as beautiful when your ancestors were living in caves.

Quotable:

Birds are taken with pipes that imate their own voices, and men with those sayings that are most agreeable to their own opinions.

Samuel Butler
