Oscar Wilde

"And you have to ask, where were the Germans? But frankly, who cares."

Barry Davies, BBC commentator, 1988 Olympic Hockey Final, as Great Britain scored the winning goal against the Germans. So much for the impartiality of the BBC.

Can't beat old Winston:

Lady Nancy Astor: Sir, if you were my husband I'd put poison in your coffee!
Churchill: Madam, if you were my wife, I'd drink it!

Mr Prime Minister Sir, you are drunk!
I may be drunk Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly!

There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, worst of it is that half of them are true.

You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else!

If this is a blessing, it's certainly very well disguised!

Some others:
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic!

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff!

Check my sig.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Albert Einstein

"In this age it has seemingly become more and more detestable to be a Christian. Our opinions on social and political issues are no longer tolerated as valid and we are commonly viewed as the enemy. Subjective truth, self-love, unrestricted perversion, the destruction of morality: these are the things that have ultimately brought us to a place of depression and madness." - Ryan Clark, Demon Hunter's frontman

And just for a bit of humor:
"Yeah! Wookiee life debts for everyone!" - RC-1262 "Scorch," Star Wars Republic Commando

Oscar Wilde has the following to say on the same theme:

'To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.'​
