The Widdershins

Fran says…

Posted on: May 2, 2014

Good afternoon Widdershins.

Real life has again found its way into messing with my posting schedule.

I’m posting this on Wednesday and since I Fran Lebowitz have been dour and somewhat caustic in my posts of late, I thought it was high time to lighten up.

Trouble is, I haven’t the talent to share anything amusing or anywhere close to thought provoking so I turned to Fran Lebowitz.  I found these musings by Ms. Lebowitz a few years ago and saved them for just such an occasion.

Given my simple way of looking at life, these are brilliant in their simplicity.  Enjoy the insight as well as the weekend.

By the Author….Fran Lebowitz

All modesty is false.

All strangers are perfect.

All musicals are revivals.

All pets are adopted.

All smoke is secondhand.

All mothers are single.

All favorites are sentimental.

All suspicions are sneaking.

All consciences are guilty.

All endings are happy.

All fanatics are religious.

No thought is consoling.

No speculation is idle.

There’s no business not like show business.

 

This is an open thread.

All thuds are sickening.

All reckonings are dead.

Ah dear Frannie. I’ve been an admirer since I found her first book Metropolitan Life. A few quotes:

My favorite animal is steak.

Great people talk about ideas, average people talk about things, and small people talk about wine.

If your sexual fantasies were truly of interest to others, they would no longer be fantasies.

Think before you speak. Read before you think. This will give you something to think about that you didn’t make up yourself – a wise move at any age, but most especially at seventeen, when you are in the greatest danger of coming to annoying conclusions.

All money is filthy. You would be amazed at what microbes grow.

Plump is not pleasing.

All hopes are dashed.

Wait…Fuzzy thinks there is nothing nicer to lay ones head on than a warm belly on a cold night….
