Bessie-isms and Quotable for May 12, 2016

Bessie-isms:

*To be an effective parent, you have to put aside all that you suffered as a child and make an effort to give your child a better set of memories than what you’re stuck with. That involves love, not things in case you don’t know.

*You will never please your spouse perfectly, but that’s no excuse not to try. Whatever you do, don’t use it as an excuse to give up.

Quotable:

Faced with the choice between changing ones mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.

John Kenneth Galbraith
