Diggin' life's martini, with a twist of 21st century consciousness.
If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you. – Oscar Wilde. It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious. To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance. Humanity takes itself too seriously. It is the world’s original sin. If the cave-man had known how to laugh, History would have been different. One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age. A woman who would tell one that would tell one anything. The nicest feeling in the world is to do a good deed anonymously-and have somebody find out. The only good thing to do with good advice is pass it on; it is never of any use to oneself.
