Quotations of the day

In today's FT, Lucy Kellaway has a cheery tribute to Helen Gurley Brown of Cosmopolitan magazine who died last week. She remembers the following quotations:

"The faster you get back to people, the less brilliant you have to be."

"Never fail to know that if you're doing all the talking, you are boring somebody."

"While putting on her make-up, a girl should tell herself, 'Tonight, baby, I'm going to get laid.'"

"Feeling insecure is good for you: it forces you to do something better, drives you to use all your talents."

"To get around the problem of forgetting people's names, call everybody 'Pussycat'."
