Bessie-isms and Quotable for March 17, 2016


*When you fall madly for someone, at first meeting, dating becomes an exercise in avoiding a reason not to marry them. How many thought this was the proper way? You’re in big trouble…

*Toddlers require guidance if they are to be decent playmates and humans. The idea that left alone, children will become cooperative and kind is some very foolish hippie nonsense. Undomesticated, our young are vicious animals, and need much instruction to become nice people.


The great secret to a successful marriage is to treat all disasters as incidents  and none of the incidents as disasters.

Harold Nicholson
