Cleaning… My Sentiments

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.

—Phyllis Diller

My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.

—Erma Bombeck

There was no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn’t get any worse.

—Quentin Crisp

Dust is a protective coating for fine furniture.

—Mario Buatta

Housework is what a woman does that nobody notices unless she hasn’t done it.

—Evan Esar

I’m eighteen years behind in my ironing. There’s no use doing it now, it doesn’t fit anybody I know.

—Phyllis Diller

I hate housework. You make the beds, you wash the dishes and six months later you have to start all over again.

—Joan Rivers

Without tolerance, our world turns into hell.

— Friedrich Durrenmatt

Ever since the Crusades, when Christians from western Europe were fighting holy wars against Muslims in the near east, western people have often perceived Islam as a violent and intolerant faith – even though when this prejudice took root Islam had a better record of tolerance than Christianity.

— Karen Armstrong

“If a child has concluded, all on her own, that it’s impossible for a man in a flying sleigh to make it all the way around the world in one night, delivering elf-made replicas of all the stuff you see in Target and Best Buy, then that’s a child I would be happy to steer toward a voting booth when she’s 18. That’s an American in search of facts. If, however, she goes on pretending to believe well into her teens (I encountered more than one such teenager in Frisco), because it makes her parents (and God) feel sweet and happy, then I become worried. That becomes an American willing to spend $100,000 on her ‘special day’ wedding, or who will believe without hard evidence that other countries harbor weapons of mass destruction when they don’t.” –
