My favorite quotes

“We send missionaries to China so the Chinese can get to heaven, but we won't let them into our country.”
Pearl S. Buck (American author, 1938 Nobel Prize for Literature, 1892-1973)

"I'm against [marriage for same-sex couples] for a very simple reason: In the '60s, they all said we had the right to the difference. And now, suddenly, they want a bourgeois life."

Men are like wine: some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.
Pope John XXII

Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.

We turn not older with years, but newer every day.
Emily Dickinson

When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.

“Life is too short to be small.”
Benjamin Disraeli quotes (British Prime Minister and Novelist. 1804-1881)

“The best way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it once.”

There are 3 kinds of people in the world…those who can count and those who can’t.

I didn’t forget your birthday, i just forgot today’s date!

You’re not 40, you’re eighteen with 22 years of experience!

Your birthday reminds me of the old Chinese scholar…….. Yung No Mo

You know the world's messed up when the world's best rapper is white, the best golfer is black, the tallest man in the NBA is Asian, and the girl with the highest voice is Justin Bieber.

Anyone who believes that men are the equal of women has never seen a man trying to wrap a Christmas present.

Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home.
Carol Nelson

From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it.
Katharine Whitehorn, Roundabout

"Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall."
Larry Wilde

Don’t be surprised if a BIG fat red man comes down your chimney and puts you in a black sack... I told Santa I want you for Christmas.

Can I get a Picture of You so that I can show Santa what I want for Christmas?

You know you've grown up when none of the things you want for Christmas can be bought at a store.

'Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people once a year.'
Victor Borge

Why is Christmas just like a day at the office? You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit.

'Santa Claus wears a Red Suit, he must be a communist. And a beard and long hair, must be a pacifist. What's in that pipe that he's smoking?'
Arlo Guthrie

"You can't see the woods for the trees."
John Heywood's 'A dialogue Conteynyng the Nomber in Effect of all the Prouerbes in the Englishe Tongue.' He wrote 'Plentie is no deinte, ye see not your owne ease. I see, ye can not see the wood for trees.', 1546.

"Some people cannot see a priest on a mountain of sugar."
Rafael Benitez on Roy Hodgson comment 'White liquid in a bottle has to be milk.'

I'd give all the Champagne I've ever drunk to be playing alongside him in a big European match at Old Trafford.
George Best on Eric Cantona

Mandy Henry: You were the only player to avoid the hairdryer treatment. Why was that?
Eric Cantona: Because I was good.

When an Italian tells me its pasta on the plate I check under the sauce to make sure. They are the inventors of the smokescreen.
Sir Alex Ferguson before Champions League game against Inter Milan in 1999

He'll do ridiculous things in training like say, "You see that tree over there?" - it'll be 40 yards away - "I'm going to hit it". And he'll do it. Everyone at the club considers him the best.
Rio Ferdinand on Scholes

'Then there was Roy Keane. You never felt you were beaten when Keaney was in your team. He never threw in the towel. I don't think any of the rest of us were less determined to win than Keaney, but what makes him different is the way he gets it across, his anger if you like. More than any other player I've seen, he affects players around him.'
Ryan Giggs on Keane

'Suddenly, I found that there was a group of mates beside me in the team. I had become friendly with David Beckham. He lived near me. I remember him coming into the changing rooms when he was about 15. Fergie would often bring a youngster in to shake hands with all the first-team players. With Becks, Steve Bruce said: "He must be some player, because he's in here every week." He was always flash, always the Londoner, but he got on with all the lads.'
Ryan Giggs on Beckham

'If I've seen anyone more confident on a football field, it's Wayne. He's just so strong, he's got pace and, like Eric, he does things which he makes look easy but which are really hard. 'The first thing I noticed about him was his control and his movement, his ability to turn as he's controlling the ball. And he's got great power and a great shot. When he signed from Everton the whole dressing room was excited. We're players, but we're fans as well — and like fans, we want United to get the best players.'
Ryan Giggs on Rooney

'I remember running home from my mate's house, turning the corner and seeing that big Mercedes,' says Giggs. 'I'd forgotten he was coming that day. It was the one and only time he's ever let me off with being late...'
Ryan Giggs on meeting Fergie for the first time

Little things he does have an effect, like remembering your mum's name. You think: "How can Alex Ferguson know my mum's name?" That makes your mum happy. And if your mum's happy, you're happy. So you sign.
Ryan Giggs on Sir Alex Ferguson

(Giggs continued: 'Manchester United have given me everything I've possibly wanted, you know. Some people, like Alan Shearer, have great careers but don't win trophies. I've been lucky to win so much — and get the friendships I've enjoyed. It's been the whole package. I wouldn't swap my career with anyone's.')

"Sometimes you look in a field and you see a cow and you think it's a better cow than the one you've got in your own field. It's a fact. Right? And it never really works out that way."
Sir Alex Ferguson

"There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and there are patriots who supported the war in Iraq. We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America."
Barack Obama

"There is not a liberal America and a conservative America - there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and latino America and asian America - there's the United States of America"
Barack Obama

"You can put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig."
Barack Obama jabbed at John McCain and Sarah Palin's idea of "change".

(The complete statement from Obama was: "John McCain says he's about change, too, and so I guess his whole angle is 'Watch out, George Bush, except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics – we're really going to shake things up in Washington!' That's not change ... you know, you can put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig." He continued, "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink. We've had enough of the same old thing." September, 2008)

"Form is temporary, Class is permanent"
Sir Alex Ferguson

From this point on I'm going to treat people exactly how they treat me. Some should be glad. Others should be scared.

I sometimes watch birds and wonder "If I could fly who would I shit on?"

People say everything happens for a reason, so when i reach over and smack you in the face remember...there was a reason!

Why is orange juice made with artificial oranges but dishwasher fluid is made with real oranges?

"Never trust an electrician with no eyebrows."

I didn't trip, I just attacked the floor with my mad ninja skills!

Have you ever wondered which hurts the most: saying something and wishing you had not, or saying nothing, and wishing you had?

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

Dear Summer, I'm afraid it's just not working out between us. I'm going to have to ask you to leave. Love (not really), Me

If you ever been in the office of Ken Custer, publisher of Denver's Advertising and Marketing Review magazine, you've seen the old sign on his wall espousing the mother of all mantra's for marketers: “Do you know what happens when you don't advertise? Nothing.”

Jeff Valdez

Meow is like aloha - it can mean anything.
Hank Ketchum

Every dog has his day - but the nights are reserved for the cats.
Author Unknown

The best kind of alarm clock is the purring kind.
Terri Guillemets

Cats are the ultimate narcissists. You can tell this because of all the time they spend on personal grooming. Dogs aren't like this. A dog's idea of personal grooming is to roll on a dead fish.
James Gorman

The way to keep a cat is to try to chase it away.
E.W. Howe

I don't think it is so much the actual bath that most cats dislike; I think it's the fact that they have to spend a good part of the day putting their hair back in place.
Debbie Peterson

I named my kitten Rose - fur soft as a petal, claws sharper than thorns.
Astrid Alauda

I love cats because I love my home and after a while they become its visible soul.
Jean Cocteau

When your kitty purrs to you, doesn't it break your heart that you can't purr back?
Terri Guillemets

People that hate cats will come back as mice in their next life.
Faith Resnick

Authors like cats because they are such quiet, lovable, wise creatures, and cats like authors for the same reasons.
Robertson Davies

Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.
Missy Dizick

The ideal of calm exists in a sitting cat.
Jules Reynard

You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats.
Colonial American Proverb

A dog, I have always said, is prose; a cat is a poem.
Jean Burden

Cats do care. For example they know instinctively what time we have to be at work in the morning and they wake us up twenty minutes before the alarm goes off. Michael Nelson

The reason cats climb is so that they can look down on almost every other animal - it's also the reason they hate birds.
K.C. Buffington

As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.
Ellen Perry Berkeley

There are two means of refuge from the misery of life - music and cats.
Albert Schweitzer

If cats could talk, they wouldn't.
Nan Porter

There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat.
Tay Hohoff

In order to keep a true perspective of one's importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him.
Dereke Bruce

You can close your eyes to things you don’t want to see, but you can’t close your heart to things you don’t want to feel.

When I see you smile and know that it is not for me, that is when I will miss you the most.

Nobody can hurt me without my permission.

When you can't remember why you're hurt, that's when you're healed.

The difference between friendship and love is how much you can hurt each other

Buying a Nikon doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a Nikon owner.

There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.
Ansel Adams

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
Ansel Adams

When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!
Ted Grant

You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.

Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.

Why am I afraid to lose you when you're not even mine...

You taught me how to love; you taught me how to live; you taught me how to laugh; you taught me how to cry, but when you left, you forgot to teach me how to forget you.

One day you'll love me, the way I loved you. One day you'll think of me the way I thought of you. One day you'll cry for me, the way I cried for you. One day you'll want me, but I won't want you.

Oftentimes we say goodbye to the person we love without wanting to. Though that doesn’t mean that we've stopped loving them or we've stopped to care. Sometimes goodbye is a painful way to say I love you.

“It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, but what is the most painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let the person know how you feel. And I enjoy it.”

“Every man is afraid of something. That's how you know he's in love with you; when he is afraid of losing you.”

You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.

The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.

Albert Einstein

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
Albert Einstein

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
Albert Einstein

How many legs does a dog have, if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.
Abraham Lincoln

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

I sometimes watch birds and wonder "If I could fly who would I shit on?"

"Never trust an electrician with no eyebrows."
