Joyce Brothers Quotes

Joyce Brothers (Good Housekeeping, 1972)
Don’t fool yourself that you are going to have it all. You are not.
Joyce Brothers (The Successful Woman : How You Can Have a Career, a Husband, and a Family - and Not Feel Guilty About It, 1988)
The world at large does not judge us by who we are and what we know; it judges us by what we have.
Joyce Brothers

Joyce Brothers (10 Keys to a Strong Family, 2002)

Joyce Brothers
