Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is.

Gotta love Maxine. Great quotes!!!! I always say that a life without regret is a life not lived. I don't know if anyone said before me but I can't find it on Google. Trust me -- I am living my life and have boatload of regrets to prove it. Sigh

What this post proves, of course, is that Maxine is the greatest philosopher the world has produced since 1950.

That's so true about being married or single. There are negatives on both sides of the fence.

We always want what we don't have. If you hair is curly you want it straight....if straight you want curly. As we age we are just happy to wake up no matter HOW we look or whether married or single. Hey....I'm breathing....alls good!

Maxine just knows how to say it, and she says what the rest of us are probably thinking.

I love your header!

Maxine is always good for a laugh. (Too bad Maxine is really a man.) She's today's version of Will Rogers.
