An old hobby of mine was collecting quotations, jotting down sentences that made me chuckle, mull or just stare into space. Films, books, songs, friends, ads, posters, graffiti, evesdropping, were all great sources.
“Being a husband is like any other job… It helps a lot if you like the boss.”
“Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.”
“The more you complain, the longer God makes you live.”
“I used to be lost in the shuffle. Now I just shuffle along with the lost.”
My friend overheard an argument between his two sons, six and eight years old. They were discussing marriage. The youngest boldly declared, “I hate girls, and I’m never going to get married! “The older boy was more receptive.”Come on,” he said persuasively. “There are lots of good things about being married.””Name one!” came the challenge.The boy didn’t hesitate. “Well, if you’re watching your favourite TV show and the phone rings, you don’t have to answer it.”
