|My sister likes to say to me, "You'll die alone and no one will care."
My dad said, "You can do something with your life or be a bum."
My mother said, "Marry a good girl, and she will tell you what to do."
I had a journalism professor who said to me, "My son died snorkeling."
in the middle of my interview in front of the class.
I tried to console her, "He's with God."
She smiled, "I just made that up. I wanted to see your reaction."
Apparently, that's one way to shake up an interview.
Friedrick Hihek, a German economist, remarked,
"If someone kicks me down a flight of stairs, should I think they love me?"
He fled to America to escape Hitler.
And my mother confessed to me, "I never loved your father, but he is comfortable."
I would like to read a story about a housewife with a fantastic life;
maybe, like June Ward on Leave it to Beaver.
