Bessie-isms and Quotable for June 6, 2014

Bessie-isms:

*If you come across a skunk, saying here, kitty, kitty,  will not produce a better outcome. Likewise, pretending that evil, greed, or dishonesty are somehow better if you call them a different name, will end as badly as pretending that a skunk is only a funny looking black and white cat!

*Everything requires moderation. The sunlight that warms on a cold day is burningly unpleasant as you labor on an August day. Quiet is necessary for contemplation, but quickly becomes oppressive when it results from having an empty house or life.

Quotable:

A sense of duty is useful in work, but offensive in personal relations. People wish to be liked, not endured with patient resignation.

Bertrand Russell
