Quote of the Day
Men are April when they woo, December when they wed. Maids are May when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives.
Maids want nothing but husbands, and when they have them, they want everything.
Old maids, having never bent their temper or their lives to other lives and other tempers, as woman's destiny requires, have for the most part a mania for making everything about them bend to them.
Honore de Balzac
Old maids sweeten their tea with scandal.
Listen, I didn't know how to make coffee when I came to the United States. Because in Colombia the maids do it.
As children, we looked up to our maids and our nannies, who were playing in some ways the role of our mothers. They were paid to be nice to us, to look after us, teach us things and take time out of their day to be with us. As a child you think of these people as an extension of your mother.
First of all, just knowing people who grew up in the movie business at that time, no one had Mexican maids.
In Hollywood through the 50s, there were black, English, and Middle European housekeepers and maids.
Maids in India have egos. Big egos. They do not like being spoken to curtly, and they do not like to be abruptly instructed by a woman they do not know. They come with the feeling that they already know everything. So while training them to do things your way, speak gently, and when they do it right, appreciate it.
To this day I clean better than most maids.
Old maids do not mind giving people trouble.
Thomas Nelson Page
When I started, it was all meter maids or the sassy nurse, or the sassy receptionist in the hospital. And I felt like: Are those the only jobs that large, black women have?
