Bessie-ism and Quotable for Feb. 7, 2014


*The difficulty of a task is often increased many times in the retelling of it.

*It is always embarrassing to discover that the newest and most profound understanding you’ve suddenly come upon is something you were taught in your youth, and rejected as too old fashioned for your taste.


Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is posible. Soon you’ll be doing the impossible.

St. Francis of Assisi


Bessie-isms and Quotable for Feb. 6, 2014


*You can get most people to do wicked, questionable and sometimes evil things merely for the price of a few compliments, things they’d never do for just cash!

*Men are at a sever disadvantage regarding conversation: they believe that to speak, one should have something to say, a limitation women simple refuse to recognize!


One of the oldest human needs is to have someone wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night.

Margaret Mead, anthropologist

Bessie-isms and Quotables for Feb 5, 2014


*Time is not your friend! When you have an abundance of it, it moves imperceptably, torturing and boring you. When you are short of it, it zooms along at light speed, mocking you for all the times you wasted it!

*Have you ever noticed, the more urgently you need to pee, the further away the restroom seems to be? Happiness seems to often behave this way too; the more urgently you need it, the harder it is to find!


We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing!

George Bernard Shaw


Bessie-isms and Quotables for Feb. 4, 2014


*Everyone has flaws and problems. You spend amazing amounts of time and effort to hide them. Why not use some of that effort to fix some of them?

*If you lose one dream, you must quickly find another! Your body will go on a time dreamless, but your heart and soul will suffer and wither from this lack.


Overnight success takes a long time!

Steve Jobs, founder of Apple
