#Quote
1Designing Women had seven years and that's history -- I call that history, and I miss my companions on that show all the time. I don't watch the reruns because it makes me sad.
2What a great relief not to try so hard to be pleasing in one's life. At one time it used to matter to me if I were attractive to people. I tried to be pretty and tried all those products on the commercials, and all the magazine beauty hints.
3It takes a mighty good man to be better than no man at all.
4Certainly if we hope to enhance and extend whatever natural assets we were given, we must expect to make an effort, if not actually great labor.
