Bessie-isms and Quotable for July 9 & 10, 2016

Bessie-isms:

*You think a companion is costly in time and effort, until you consider the cost of being alone and miserable.

*Weeds are mostly flowers lacking a wide fan base.

Quotable:

Many people have played themselves to death. Many people have eaten and drunk themselves to death. Nobody ever thought himself to death.
