More Bitchy & Beyond Fabulous Quotes - ala Mignon
TGIF a wee bit late, D. D. Scott-ville!
But boy - is this a beyond, better late than never!!!
Today, we're goin' bitchy ala Mignon...and no not as in filet mignon, but rather even more top-of-the-line fabulous than that...try ala Mignon McLaughlin
Mignon was an American journalist - she wrote for Vogue in the 1940s, Glamour in the '60s and '70s, and also wrote short stories for both Redbook and Cosmopolitan. In addition, she was the author of the amazing Neurotic's Notebooks plus a playwright too.
I just recently discovered her Neurotic's Notebooks - and wow, talk about some gargantuan great MUSE THERAPY inspiration!!! Here are some of her most famous quotes from these books (as gathered from the beyond wonderful Quote Garden at http://www.quotegarden.com):
If an article is attractive, or useful, or inexpensive, they'll stop making it tomorrow; if it's all three, they stopped making it yesterday. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
If there is something you must do and you cannot do it, you cannot do anything else. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
I tell you this, and I tell you plain:
What you have done, you will do again;
You will bite your tongue, careful or not,
Upon the already-bitten spot.
~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
Anything you lose automatically doubles in value. --- Mignon McLaughlin
Every society honors its live conformists and its dead troublemakers. --- Mignon McLaughlin
And how 'bout this one for every romance writer's keeper shelf:
