"When in Rome, I'm happy to go along with it. I'll eat Pasta, but...

...when in Egypt, they don't say do they, when in Egypt, have a b@llock for lunch."

Karl Pilkington
Nope, they definitely don't say that...



'I think the other reason that makes Christ the Redeemer one of the Wonders is..

Karl Pilkington

You can't argue with that logic.....

"She said she was approaching forty...

...and I couldn't help wondering from what direction."

Bob Hope
 
From an institution? What woman admits to being 40...?

"The only time a woman really succeeds in changing a man...

...is when he is a baby."

Natalie Wood

Wise woman...

"I have never admitted that I am more than twenty-nine...

...or thirty at the most. Twenty-nine when there are pink shades, thirty when there are not."

Oscar Wilde

God, that old.....

"As one grows older, one becomes wiser and more foolish."

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

"People who think they know everything...

...are a great annoyance to those of us who do."

Isaac Asimov

Couldn't agree more...



"I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered....

...But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall."

Eleanor Roosevelt

Meh, could have been worse....
