Ursula Parrott

  • Not every woman who used to be married is one. You're an ex-wife, Pat, because it is the most important thing to know about you ... explains everything else, that you once were married to a man who left you.

  • An ex-wife is a woman with a crick in the neck from looking back over her shoulder at her matrimony.

  • Marriage is like war — an experience that no adventurous man would evade, and no sensible man repeat.

  • Coolidge is the best living demonstration that, if you keep silent long enough, something fortunate may happen to you.

  • Being civilized means that one keeps one's words unrelated to one's thoughts, when necessary.

  • The only problem is whether one adds life to one's years or years to one's life.

Ursula Parrott, U.S. writer

(1900 - 1957)

Real name: Katherine Ursula Towle.
