Don't quote me but....

I picked up a great little book the other day from The Works. It's called Wit by Des MacHale, and it's crammed full of quotes the author has collected over the last twenty years (though many of the quotes go further back than that). An example of what's in the book is illustrated opposite. Some more are:

The Sun never sets on the British Empire because God wouldn't trust an Englishman in the Dark.

It's not the people in prison who worry me. It's the ones who aren't.

Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.

They are not really fixng the streets. They are just moving the holes around so motorists can't memorize them.

They couldn't hit an elephant at this dist.....

The best way to find things is to buy a replacement.

Statistics are like loose women: once you get your hands on them you can do whatever you like with them.

The high standards of Australians are due to the fact that their ancestors were all hand-picked by England's best Judges.

For more, either pick up the book or go here. Or check in the sidebar everyday for a new quote.
