I like the way this woman thinks. I had never heard of her until today, when Van sent out his quotes of the day about Mignon McLaughlin. I keep wanting to call her Filet.
Courage can’t see around corners, but goes around them anyway.
Every society honors its live conformists and its dead troublemakers.
The hardest learned lesson: that people have only their kind of love to give, not our kind.
What you can’t get out of, get into wholeheartedly.
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
Hope is the feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent.
Nobody really listens to anyone else, and if you try it for a while you’ll see why.
Women usually love what they buy, yet hate two-thirds of what is in their closets.
All from Mignon McLaughlin, 1913 – 1983
