|#7229||... most of us learned about love the hard way. Even warnings are probably|
useless, for somehow, despite the severest warnings of parents and friends,
hundreds, thousands of women have forgotten themselves at the last minute
and succumbed to the lies, promises, flatteries, or mere attentions of
lusting, lovely men, landing themselves in complicated predicaments from
which some of them never recovered during their entire lives. And I am not
speaking only of your teenaged Midwesterners in 1958; I'm speaking of women
of every age in every city in every year. The notorious sexual revolution
has saved no one from the pain and confusion of love.
-- Alix Kates Shulman
|#7230||My notion of a husband at forty is that a woman should be able to change him,|

|#7234||Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.|
-- Phyllis Diller, "Phyllis Diller's Housekeeping Hints"
|#7235||Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.|
-- Nelson Algren
|#7236||Never tell. Not if you love your wife ... In fact, if your old lady walks|
in on you, deny it. Yeah. Just flat out and she'll believe it: "I'm
tellin' ya. This chick came downstairs with a sign around her neck `Lay
On Top Of Me Or I'll Die'. I didn't know what I was gonna do..."
-- Lenny Bruce
|#7237||New Year's Eve is the time of year when a man most feels his age,|
