SKIN-DEEP & Other Quotes

Profile of a girl

“I’m tired of
all this nonsense
about
beauty being
only skin-deep.

That’s deep enough.
What do you want,
an adorable pancreas?”

Jean Kerr (1923-2003)

Jean Kerr, married to drama critic Walter Kerr, wrote humorous novels and plays about 1950s and 1960s life in suburbia, including marriage and children. Jean Kerr’s 1957 novel Please Don’t Eat the Daisies, a humorous take on her own life,was made into a movie and television series.

I do like that quote above, actually.

She said these as well:

“A lawyer is never entirely comfortable with a friendly divorce, anymore than a good mortician wants to finish his job and then have the patient sit up on the table.”

“Do you know how helpless you feel if you have a full cup of coffee in your hand and you start to sneeze?”

“Women speak because they wish to speak, whereas a man speaks only when driven to speech by something outside himself — like, for instance, he can’t find any clean socks.”


Tis for now, Rii xx
