Chapter 6: Expectation Breeds Frustration
.A woman can keep one secret - the secret of her age.
.Except for that, she cannot keep any secret!
.God invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
.A man never knows what a fool he is until he hears himself imitated by one.
.It is natural. How can you see your face without a mirror?.
.Be nice to people on your way up because you will meet them on your way down.
.A mistake is evidence that someone tried to do something.
.You can see the mistake all over the world. This is the only proof that God tried to do something. Perhaps he was the creator. Creation may not need some creator, but mistakes need someone to do them. This whole world is a mistake, and I think this is the only proof that God may have been trying to do something..
.If a person does not learn from the mistakes of others, he won’t live long enough to make all of them himself.
.The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.
.Everyone is as God made him, and often a good deal worse.
.Gossip is what no one claims to like, but everybody enjoys.
.It is difficult to climb a ladder with your hands in your pockets, but it is possible if your hands are in someone else’s pockets.
Then you can climb any ladder. The people you see at the top, those big chunks, their hands are always in somebody else’s pocket.
So whenever you meet the so-called leaders, popes, shankaracharyas, take care about your pockets. They are not interested in you, they are interested only in your pockets..
.Familiarity breeds contempt - and children.
.The hardest task of a woman’s life is to prove to a man that his intentions are serious.
.How do you know your therapy group is right for you?
One: It is too expensive.
Two: All your friends have done it.
Three: It focuses on problems you never knew you had.
