Linda Henley

  • If God had intended us to follow recipes, He wouldn't have given us grandmothers.

    • Linda Henley,
    • in Jennifer Gates Hayes, ed., Pearls of Wisdom From Grandma ()
  • ... So many of us define ourselves by what we have, what we wear, what kind of house we live in and what kind of car we drive ... If you think of yourself as the woman in the Cartier watch and the Hermes scarf, a house fire will destroy not only your possessions but your self.
