Famous quotes containing the words books and/or bbc:

    After I discovered the real life of mothers bore little resemblance to the plot outlined in most of the books and articles I’d read, I started relying on the expert advice of other mothers—especially those with sons a few years older than mine. This great body of knowledge is essentially an oral history, because anyone engaged in motherhood on a daily basis has no time to write an advice book about it.
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

    To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer.
    —Anonymous. quoted in “Quote Unquote,” Feb. 22, 1982, BBC Radio 4.
