About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

A Few Good Quotes

Just simply for a bit of fun, and as a follow-up to my previous post about most men's inability to seduce a woman, I found a few quotes and this hilarious (in my humble opinion) cartoon. Enjoy and feel free to comment on any or all of the quotes.

Being in therapy is great. I spend an hour just talking about myself. It's kinda like being the guy on a date. Caroline Rhea - comedienne

Critic: a legless man who teaches running.


Satirist: a man who discovers unpleasant things about himself and then says them about other people. Peter McArthur – Canadian writer

Egotist: a person more interested in himself than in me.
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) – writer and satirist

Age does not protect you from love but love to some extent protects you from age.
Jeanne Moreau - actress

Compromise: An amiable arrangement between husband and wife whereby they agree to let her have her own way. Anonymous

"Age does not protect you from love but love to some extent protects you from age.
Jeanne Moreau - actress

Jeanne Moreau was one of my favorite actresses - and women! What a wonderful quote. Can I borrow it?

Leslie: said...

By all means...it's yours to do with as you please...lol

geewits said...

Those are all good. Thanks for putting that together!

I love Caroline Rhea's the most. The others are soooo true as well.

Also, I do audio on my blog and episode eight is all about two men advising another how to seduce a woman.

Leslie: said...

Welcome middle ditch - LOVED episode 8! Exactly what all men need to know about how to seduce a woman.

My wife's definition of marriage, "What is your's is ours; what is mine is mine."

Other Quotes;
A masochist is someone who says,"Beat me!"
And a sadist is one who replies, "No!"

An optimist is one who "believes that we are living in the best possible world."
And a pessimist is one who "is afraid this may be true."

Leslie: said...

good ones, LGS. My husband used to say the same thing about me as his wife...well, it was true. lol

Russell said...

Enjoyed this post!

Years ago I saw a Candid Camera show - the real one with Allen Funt and Durward Kirby. A man was asked how he had stayed married for over 50 years to his wife.

The guy looked at the camera and said "Easy. She goes her way and I go her way!!"

I will never forget that line!! I still laugh about it when I hear it. Of course, it IS true....!!

Take care.

Haha! And love that Jeanne Moreau quote.
