Quotes and words

"If you stay in Beverly Hills too long you become a Mercedes."

- Robert Redford


"I do not see any other way of realizing our hopes about World Organization in five or six days. Even the Almighty took seven."

- Winston Churchill


"In youth we learn; in age we understand."

And the word of the day is: 

bamboozle: to deceive or get the better of someone by trickery, flattery, or the like; to perplex, mystify.

"In his opening remarks he addressed the rumors that he was going to try to bamboozle them with a lot of technicalities and theatrics."

I hope you all had a good Sunday!!

Bamboozle is a great word and so underutilized. Thanks for given it the recognition its due.
Have a good night. xo

I like "bamboozle" as well, though I rarely use it. Perhaps today is the day!
