Speaking of ugly and tears-
a friend of ours was a good dentist but not so good at carpentry. He built a cart to take their garbage cans to the curb for pickup.He proudly took it out to the curb on Friday morning and the garbage men threw the garbage and the cart into the truck. Poor Lionel never lived it down and his wife laughed to tears when telling the story.

How about some "sayings" that compliment people? 
Seems we have read a lot of them that put down or make fun of women for something that they couldn't do anything about. Just thinking there must be some out there. For me, I've read enough of "she's ugly" ones. 

No offense meant to anyone posting them, but would like to see some that are a bit more positive.

Or am I just in a foul mood or too DanG sensitive ?

I agree with Beenthere and am a bit surprised at the lack of honour shown from parents to children in so many of the sayings.When the apostle Paul was bitten by a venomous snake,he tossed it in the fire where it would harm nobody else.Words can be like venomous snakes.

The simple lack of her is more to me than others' presence.  ~Edward Thomas

I can live for two months on a good compliment.  ~Mark Twain

Marge, you're as pretty as Princess Leia and as smart as Yoda.  ~Homer Simpson
