Helen Gurley Brown 1922-2012






Helen Gurley Brown quotes:
"Never fail to know that if you are doing all the talking, you are boring somebody." 
"Nearly every glamorous, wealthy, successful career woman you might envy now started out as some kind of schlepp." 
"I was mousy on the outside but inside I'm this tiger and I have to get on with it." 
"Beauty can't amuse you, but brainwork -- reading, writing, thinking -- can."

  1. Your wonderful, random "You might also like" link generator was displaying a photo of J Lo titled "Peachy" and I wonder if that was in response to the quote, "I was mousy on the outside but inside I'm this tiger and I have to get on with it." ;-) ~~nozknoz

  3. thanks for the quotes!

    i grew up reading my mom's cosmos - she even kept years worth of them for many years. not sure the reading ever helped me with men (in fact, it probably messed me up a bit!) but i still appreciate what she did. and gauging by the quotes, i probably would've enjoyed getting to talk with her.

    cheers,
    minette
