"That statement is either so deep it would take a lifetime to fully comprehend every particle of its meaning, or it is a load of absolute tosh. Which is it, I wonder?"

"Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life."

"It would seem that you have no useful skill or talent whatsoever," he said. "Have you thought of going into teaching?"

"Real children don't go hoppity-skip unless they are on drugs."

Another famous Churchill quote:

One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.

"i see you want to give up but i cant live your life for you. you have to live it yourself. but if you want, i will live it with you"

i think these are lyrics of some song i saw it written on some cute artwork in dA and it got me.. so true, we sometimes rely on some other people to live our lives in our behalf but this attempt fails without exceptionXD

"We English are good at forgiving our enemies; it releases us from the obligation of liking our friends" :D PD James


One of my mini-digressions, I hope it's OK:

Yes, I am English, but I know some people (not here:hug: ) laugh at the way I say things:mad: :hea: :mad: - I do not care. It is because I have a very unusual background since birth and have only recently returned to my homeland. I have seen and learnt many things on the way...:cool:

I shall sneak in another quote: Solvitur ambulando - it kinda means travel broadens the mind.

I am trying to perfect my English - it's one of the reasons I joined this forum!:hug:

Thats my Dad's favourite quote. He repeats it over and over in his little conversations with the dog.

God picking out the favourites is SO hard. I could go on,but here are a few.

~Some day you are the dog, and some day you are the hydrant.

~There's too much blood in my caffeine system.

~Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out alive

~A man never reaches that dizzy height of wisdom that he can no longer be led by the nose.

~There are three sides to every story, your side, my side and the right side.

~If you are out to describe the truth, leave the elegance to the tailor.
