Marlo Says

Marlo Thomas has the most amazing sayings about everything.

Here are a few of her choice gems from the American Cancer Society lunch on October 26.

To her grandchildren:
“Just follow your dreams.  It’s a wide world.  Don’t follow a narrow constipated path.”

Her father, comedian Danny Thomas, told her:
“I raised you to be a thoroughbred, and they are trained to run their own race. Don’t worry about being compared to me.  You just run your own race and be the best you can be.”

About her mother:

“One of the great things my mother gave us was a sense of family.  She moved us as a unit to be with Dad who was always traveling.  Also, she was so generous with everyone.  If the Fed Ex guy came, she insisted on giving him a sandwich.”
