Erma Bombeck Quote
“Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.”
The original version of this quotation is slightly different: "Seize the moment [...] I got thinking one day about all those women on Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to cut back. From then on, I've tried to be a little more flexible." - From: "Forever, Erma: Best-Loved Writing From America's Favorite Humorist" (1997), "Seize the Moment - June 25, 1991"
“My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.”
I Lost Everything in the Post-Natal Depression (1973), p. 150
