Bessie-isms and Quotable for May 13, 2016

Bessie-isms:

*Glass is hard but can be seen through. So many hearts are hard as glass and utterly opaque. They hide things easily, but they break easily too, much like glass.

*Be honest, but be gentle with your honesty also. Above all, don’t be mean and spiteful in your honesty, otherwise just shut up.

Quotable:

History’s lessons are no more enlightening than the wisdom of those who interpret them.

David Schoenbrun
