Wouldn’t you know some younger woman at a celebrity forum posted a hilarious quotation made by this infamous femme fatale born at the beginning of the 1900’s who has left us a few pearls of wisdom before departing this mortal coil. My pride was dinged a bit to have missed them thus far, but I’m pleased to see evidence of wisdom from the Millennials. So, I’m sharing with you lovely ladies!
Zsa Zsa Gabor is an actress known for her glamorous image and numerous marriages. She is from an era when women knew how to use their assets and celebrity women did so without apology.

Afterall – The Choice Was Always Yours!
Here are several choice quotations:
A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he’s finished.
Getting divorced just because you don’t love a man is almost as silly as getting married just because you do.
How many husbands have I had? You mean apart from my own?
I don’t remember anybody’s name. How do you think the “dahling” thing got started?
I never hated a man enough to give him diamonds back.
I’m a great housekeeper. I get divorced. I keep the house.
I want a man who’s kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?
You never really know a man until you have divorced him.
Men have always liked me and I have always liked men. But I like a mannish man, a man who knows how to talk to and treat a woman—not just a man with muscles.
