Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
We all grace as we grow older,
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Smile, smile and you’ll live longer,
Money can’t buy happiness
More isn’t more, it’s less.
Life is for the living
It’s better to be giving,
Keep your chin up high
You’ll feel better if you cry,
Love is grand and love is gay
Every dog will have his day,
And I was born just yesterday!
The master of light verse, Ogden Nash.
The Lord in His wisdom made the fly, And then forgot to tell us why. - Ogden Nash Judith Viorst is quite funny! http://www.simonandschuster.com/multimedia?video=626073741001
Dorothy Parker of course.
When I am old, and comforted,
And done with this desire,
With Memory to share my bed
And Peace to share my fire,
I’ll comb my hair in scalloped bands
Beneath my laundered cap,
And watch my cool and fragile hands
Lie light upon my lap.
And I will have a sprigged gown
With lace to kiss my throat;
I’ll draw my curtain to the town,
And hum a purring note.
And I’ll forget the way of tears,
And rock, and stir my tea.
But oh, I wish those blessed years
Were further than they be!
