For Live a Little Monday-and time for weekly dose of happiness quotes, I thought I’d share some of my favorite quotes from a few books. To me, good living MUST include good books. I love a book where the writing makes me smile or actually laugh out loud. Enjoy!
The quote at the beginning of Summer Friends by Holly Chamberlin:
“It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.” Ralph Waldo Emerson.
When discussing a gift from her mother in law, “Do you know what she gave me for Christmas this year?” “It was a book called “Extreme Makeover, Personal Edition: How to Reface Your “Cabinets” and Shore Up Your Sagging Structure.”
When Nicole, a professional matchmaker, meets with a client who wants a woman younger than 35, she writes the following on her note pad,”Sell by date- 35.”
From Angelina’s Bachelors by Brian O’Reilly-
“..you didn’t have to know her long to spot the surgically enhanced chip on her shoulder.”
“Of all life’s rich rewards, Angelina felt that the creation of cake must be one of the most gratifying.”
Cousin Stella said, “Maury’s always had a low sex drive. Once, twice a month. Then our youngest was born with red hair, and we both have dark hair. I could see only one reason for it. Rust.”
“I’d never heard of a place called the Kama Sutra and figured it was probably some boring old volcano.”
“Are you that anxious to go out and find your next ex-husband?”
“See how she walks? Looks like she’s squeezin’ her life savings between her cheeks.”
“As a courtesan, you must work toward the Four Necessities: jewelry, furniture, a seasonal contract with a stipend, and a comfortable retirement.”
“Don’t let yourself become too thin. No man likes bony limbs poking them. And it’s bad business if a suitor accidentally snaps a girl’s ribs.”
Enjoy your Monday!
