With Maturity Comes Despair

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”

*Jane Austen


I Love the Bzzzing Bees!

Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.
**Mary Kay Ash

Nose in the Sand

I might show facts as plain as day:

but, since your eyes are blind, you’d say,

“Where? What?”

and turn away.

**Christina Rossetti

Don’t Remind Me

There is no man, however wise, who has not at some period of his youth said things, or lived in a way the consciousness of which is so unpleasant to him in later life that he would gladly, if he could, expunge it from his memory.
**Marcus Proust

Put It To Work

“The essence of knowledge is, having it, to apply it. Or, not having it, to confess your ignorance.”


Successful Ignorance

“I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things, and I have succeeded fairly well.”

**Robert Benchley
