Thank you SZS for these important messages
1-The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
2-In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.
3-One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.
4-I think knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can.
5- Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
6-I don’t know how to tell a joke. I never tell jokes. I can tell stories that happened to me… anecdotes. But never a joke.
7-It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.
8-I cured myself of shyness when it finally occurred to me that people didn’t think about me half as much as I gave them credit for. The truth was, nobody gave a damn… When I stopped being prisoner to what I worried was others’ opinions of me, I became more confident and free.
9-A man who correctly guesses a woman’s age may be smart, but he’s not very bright.
10-Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: hard work — and realizing what is an opportunity and what isn’t.
11-I’d rather regret the things I have done than the things that I haven’t.
12-Use a makeup table with everything close at hand and don’t rush; otherwise you’ll look like a patchwork quilt.
13-Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead.
14-Things said in embarrassment and anger are seldom the truth.
15-You won’t be happy, whatever you do, unless you’re comfortable with your own conscience.
16-Children internalize their parents’ unhappiness. Fortunately, they absorb our contentment just as readily.
17-Life takes guts.
I love Lucy
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Eliot xoxo
