A hard man is good to find.

A man can be short and dumpy and getting bald but if he has fire, women will like him.

Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.

An ounce of performance is worth pounds of promises.

A man in the house is worth two in the street.

Cultivate your curves - they may be dangerous but they won't be avoided.

A man's kiss is his signature.

Give a man a free hand and he'll run it all over you.

And there's more!

Belated birthday, Mae. It wasn't hard to guess your sign.

Ooh, there's something very Bette Midler about Mae in the photograph.

Those quotes are terrific. What a gal!

One that I particularly associate with her is, 'It's not the men in my life that counts--it's the life in my men.'

Gutsy and glamorous to the end.

In a such a button-down age, Mae tread such a fine line between what was lewd and what was risqué, and it was her clever wit that won her so many admirers.

Yes, the divine Bette owes something to her, no doubt about it.

Ballsy, when women generally were too genteel to show it (but certainly not to think it.)

I LOVE that line. And yes, yes, yes, it is soooo true. I can think of a fellah who in every way wasn't my type, but I remember the brief encounter with his mouth thirty years later with GREAT fondness. I mean, any one who could kiss like that had to leave me wondering. :-D
