                                 Good Quotes

~Plato, said, "You can discover more about a person in an hour of play, than in a year of conversation."

~Every child should have 2 things: a dog, and a mother who let him have one.

~When asked whether he ever confused a Bordeaux with a Burgundy in a blind tasting, British wine legend Harry Waugh replied: "Not since lunch.

   

 

"Look,  I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don't starve myself in an extremist way. You're not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I'd be devastated."

Jennifer Aniston
