Buy This Book

my new favorite book, originally uploaded by debbie millman.

Some Quotes:

Considering the Alternative

"Oh, how I regret not having worn a bikini for the entire year I was twenty-six. If anyone young is reading this, go right this minute, put on a bikini and don't take it off until you are thirty-four."

On Maintenance

"Sometimes I think that not having to worry about your hair anymore is the secret upside of death. Tell the truth. Aren't you tired of washing and drying it? I know people who wash their hair everyday, and I don't get it. Your hair doesn't need to be washed every day, anynore than your black pants have to be dry-cleaned every time you wear them."

What I Wish I'd Known

"Never marry a man you wouldn't want to be divorced from."

"The last four years of psychoanalysis are a waste of money."

"You can order more than one dessert."
