Famous quotes containing the words cookie, girl and/or scout:
“Living by basic good-mothering guidelines enables a mom to blend the responsibilities of parenthood with its joys; to know when to stand her ground and when to be flexible; and to absorb the lessons of the parenting gurus while also trusting her inner voice when it reasons that another cookie isnt worth fighting over, or that her child wont suffer irreparable trauma if, once in a while, Mom puts her own needs first.”
—Sue Woodman (20th century)
“The girl who cant dance says the band cant play.”
“Simone Clouseau: Jacques would make a wonderful father. He has many redeeming qualities, you know.
Sir Charles: Name one.
Simone Clouseau: Oh, hes kind, loyal, faithful, obedient.
Sir Charles: Youre either married to a boy scout or a dachshund.”
—Blake Edwards (b. 1922)
