Q is for Quips and Quotes

ABC Wednesday
May 4th, 2016

The letter is Q for Quips and Quotes


Some years ago when we were raising money for a Parish Hall some of the good cooks in our congregation put together a book of recipes entitled 'Secrets of a Small Town".


To spice it up a little we added a few choice QUIPS AND QUOTES 
to the bottom of some of the pages....

for example.....

The cure for boredom is curiosity.  There is no cure for curiosity.


Whenever I have to choose between two evils I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.  

(Mae West)



A family should never attempt an auto trip if the kids outnumber the windows.



If God believed in permissiveness He would have given us the Ten Suggestions.



The world has too many cranks and not enough self starters




A diplomat is one who can tell a man he's open minded when he means he has a hole in his head.


More interesting Qs here at ABC Wednesday with thanks to Denise, Roger and
quotable helpers...

I learnt a new word: Quip! And I like it. Your quips are splendid.
Thanks for your visit and comment, Hildred.

Great quips and quotes! I particularly like the one about too many people for the # of windows in a car. Reminds me of the time when I was a child and my parents always put me beside a window because I got very car sick! They NEVER put me in the middle after "the first time." lol
