Amazon.com: Artemus Ward (1834-1867) Npseudonym Of Charles Farrar ...

I am saddest when I sing.  So are those who hear me.  They are sadder even than I am.”   —   Artemus Ward

(America’s first stand-up comedian!  He was likely the inspiration for Josh Billings and Mark Twain!  Dude died of tuberculosis though.  At only 36!  I’m sure he probably had a passable singing voice.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Trump's hidden life on the golf course - POLITICO

Some folks seem to think they’re worth a lot of money just because they have it.”   —   Source Unknown

(I get where they were going.  But, I think it would be better stated as:  Some folks seem to think they’re worth a lot just because they have a lot of money.  What do you folks think?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Napoleon I | Napoleon Bonaparte Wiki | Fandom

Alexandre Dumas (père) | Random Phoughts

Kings will lose their privilege, as stars which have completed their time lose their splendor.”   —   Dumas, “Pere”

(This could apply to our Donald Trump.  He’s not actually a King, of course, but he seems to think that he is.  It looks like Rebecca got a little inventive with the author’s name!  Alexandre Dumas, the great 19th Century writer, was often called “Père“, which – strangely enough – is French for father!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

God pardons like a mother who kisses away the repentant tears of her child.”   —   Henry Ward Beecher

(Hmm.  The day after Father’s Day.  We’ll see how long this continues.  I wonder if Rebecca was physically, or sexually, abused by her father?  Maybe, he was too strict?  Maybe, he was abusive to her mother?  Or, maybe he just abandoned them?  She most definitely shows an anti-male bias in a lot of her quotes selections.  Very unfortunate.  I hope she gets help for this.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
