Now that schools have opened and classes have begun, the English homework for the day is to break down the messages in the following quotes by famous women.
Let’s have a laugh . . .
“Old age ain’t no place for sissies.” – Betty Davis
So, maybe bravery as you age is simply attempting that skill on your iPhone, that your granddaughter just taught you, where you create a doc folder, take a photo, choose that photo, close your eyes and dare to press ‘move to album’ to export it to your doc folder!
“If high heels were so wonderful, men would still be wearing them.” – Sue Grafton
We’ve seen Lady Gaga walking around wearing 9-inch platform heels. Would a senior wife have her senior hubby wear such a shoe to reach for the glass on the topmost shelf of the kitchen cabinet and would he think that was so wonderful?
“New York City is filled with the same kind of people I left New Jersey to get away from.” – Fran Lebowitz
The moral here is people are the same all over the world and we should just embrace this dynamic.
“I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career.” – Gloria Steinem
I have yet to hear a man ask for advice, period. That’s why you see older men wearing knee-length socks, sandals, and long, baggy shorts. But when you’re married you can make a career out of it!
“One cannot really dance in a tiara.” – Queen Elizabeth II
Don’t you just love the Queen? No break down necessary.
“I enjoy life. I like to garden. I like to clean floors, polish the furniture, sleep, make movies and eat. That’s right. You’re either born happy like that or you’re not.” – Katharine Hepburn
Old or young, I don’t think Kate forgot anything!
