“I’ve got two daughters who will have to
make their way in this skinny-obsessed world,
and it worries me because I don’t want them to be
empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones;
I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind,
opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before “thin.” ”
– J.K. Rowling
“Isn’t elegance forgetting what one is wearing?”
– Yves Saint Laurent
“A woman should be like a single flower, not a whole bouquet.”
– Anna Held
In our house,
Mother’s Day is every day.
Father’s Day, too.
In our house, parents count.
They do important work
and that work matters.
One day just doesn’t cut for us.
– Margaret Heffernan
A man is walking down the beach and comes across an old bottle. He picks it up, pulls out the cork and out pops a genie!
The genie says, “Thank you for freeing me from the bottle. In return I will grant you three wishes.”
The man says “Great! I always dreamed of this and I know exactly what I want. First, I want one billion dollars in a Swiss bank account.”
Poof! There is a flash of light and a piece of paper with account numbers appears right in front of him!
He continues, “Next, I want a brand new red Ferrari right here.”
Poof! There is a flash of light and a bright red, brand-new Ferrari appears right next to him!
He continues, “Finally, I want to be irresistible to women.”
Poof! There is a flash of light and he turns into a box of chocolates.
