Spook's Scribble Collection...

Quotes? You want quotes?

I got hundreds of the things.... here's a few favourites:

"It is better to keep your mouth shut and let people THINK you're an idiot than to open your mouth and confirm it." - (I've forgotten)

"Lost? I am NOT lost! I know precisely where I am! ... I'm right here." - (Also unsure...)

"The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions." - Oliver Wendell Holmes.

"Life is far too important to be taken seriously" - Oscar Wilde

"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." - Mark Twain

Here's a couple I say on a regular basis...

"I've got it! What we need is a really complex, foolproof and brilliantly thought out plan! ... Failing that, we could improvise." - Me!

"Half the world think I'm crazy. The rest KNOW I am." - Me again.

"Yes yes yes, I'm sure this thing is very important. ... But what does it DO?" - Me.

"If all else fails, RUN AWAY!" - Me.

"I don't need an excuse to be mad. I'm Welsh." - Me

And finally, a rather amusing dialouge I can't resist putting in here:

American Tourist: "What's the point in visiting Britain? It's just a boring little island, what's there to see?"

Me: "Hey! It may be nothing but a small damp bog at the edge of the world, but it's MY small damp bog at the edge of the world! And for your information, it's name is Britain."

The End
