I came across a gilt fortune cookie on a black silk cord. It had a fortune inside of it attached with a chain. The back of the chain was signed ©Haskell. Miriam Haskell made several of these fortune cookie necklaces, with different "fortunes". The black silk cord is original to the piece. This cookie has the fortune: "Never sleep with anyone crazier than yourself". A collector of these Haskell cookies wrote me and said these are some of the other fortunes:
A thing not looked for is seldom found
Life is a song. Love is the music
Always know where the exit is
Life is what happens when you're making other plans
You may give without loving but you cannot love without giving
The best thing to hold onto in this world is each other
By the time you are able to make ends meet, somebody moves the ends.
A path without obstacles probably leads nowhere
Don't ever confuse motion with progress
If everything seems to be coming your way, you're probably in the wrong place
The thing about doing nothing is that you never know when you're finished
I wonder how many different fortunes are out there in these cookies? If you have one not listed above, please contact me and I will add it.
