Elizabeth Taylor

The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they’re going to have some pretty annoying virtues.

George Santayana

Skepticism, like chastity, should not be relinquished too readily.

Norman Ford

Never try to tell everything you know. It may take too short a time.

Putt’s law

Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.

Randy K. Milholland

It’s not a matter of whether or not someone’s watching over you. It’s just a question of their intentions.

Oscar Wilde

Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

Pam Davis

Lies are like children: they’re hard work, but it’s worth it because the future depends on them.

Woodrow Wilson

A conservative is a man who sits and thinks, mostly sits.

Doug Larson

If the English language made any sense, a catastrophe would be an apostrophe with fur.

John Lennon

Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.

James Thurber

I do not have a psychiatrist and I do not want one, for the simple reason that if he listened to me long enough, he might become disturbed.

Al Fraken

When you encounter seemingly good advice that contradicts other seemingly good advice, ignore them both.

Niels Bohr

Lady Nancy Astor

I married beneath me. All women do.

Margaret Atwood

We still think of a powerful man as a born leader and a powerful woman as an anomaly.

Dave Barry

In the past decade or so, the women’s magazines have taken to running home-handyperson articles suggesting that women can learn to fix things just as well as men. These articles are apparently based on the ludicrous assumption that _men_ know how to fix things, when in fact all they know how to do is _look_ at things in a certain squinty-eyed manner, which they learned in Wood Shop; eventually, when enough things in the home are broken, they take a job requiring them to transfer to another home.

Clare Booth Luce

Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, ‘She doesn’t have what it takes.’ They will say, ‘Women don’t have what it takes.’

H.L. Mencken

A man’s women folk, whatever their outward show of respect for his merit and authority, always regard him secretly as an ass, and with something akin to pity. His most gaudy sayings and doings seldom deceive them; they see the actual man within, and know him for a shallow and pathetic fellow. In this fact, perhaps, lies one of the best proofs of feminine intelligence, or, as the common phrase makes it, feminine intuition.

Will Rogers

You know, women always could endure more than men. Not only physically, but mentally - did you ever get a peek at some of the husbands?
