« All quotes from this author

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
Poem Warning

There are four ways in which you can spend money. You can spend your own money on yourself. When you do that, why then you really watch out what youíre doing, and you try to get the most for your money. Then you can spend your own money on somebody else. For example, I buy a birthday present for someone. Well, then Iím not so careful about the content of the present, but Iím very careful about the cost. Then, I can spend somebody elseís money on myself. And if I spend somebody elseís money on myself, then Iím sure going to have a good lunch! Finally, I can spend somebody elseís money on somebody else. And if I spend somebody elseís money on somebody else, Iím not concerned about how much it is, and Iím not concerned about what I get. And thatís government. And thatís close to 40% of our national income.

Milton Friedman

When a man does exactly what a woman expects him to do she doesn't think much of him. One should always do what a woman doesn't expect, just as one should say what she doesn't understand.

Oscar Wilde

After midlife, one falls back on C G Jung and determines that the first years of life were in themselves symbolic.
To learn a profession (calling) doesn't mean that you are called. To obtain money doesn't mean that you are rich. To marry doesn't mean that you have learned to love. To build a house doesn't mean that you are at home.
All the things you did until you turned forty confront you again after midlife as a task, but this time inwardly.

Eugen Drewermann

There's an attitude or a view that the money parents pay in school fees should go to the core business of teaching and learning, and any money that doesn't go there is somehow less-than-appropriate spending. The same attitude doesn't come into play when you go to the supermarket - you just accept that some money will go to advertising... We just want to keep our name there in people's minds.

Simon Gipson

I donít know why he said that. Maybe he wanted to be in the paper? Maybe he doesnít understand what I do? Itís bizarre to me that he says he doesnít know who I am because heís dressed me in the past. Iíve worn Karl Lagerfeld. Not even Chanelóhis line. Lagerfeld doesnít just send random things everywhere, so it was a big thing for me [to wear his label] to the CFDA Awards a few years ago. I donít know how he missed that, when he dressed me that time. But you know, itís cool. People can say whatever they want to say. You canít please everybody, and you canít live your life wanting to please everybody either.
