A great quote

September 1st, 2008 No comments

I don’t think I have enough favourite quotes to make a list out of, but this one makes me smile. I tore it out of a sunday supplement and it’s been taped to the wall by my desk for years. Now it’s all yellow and the sellotape has perished so I thought I’d make a note of it here until I get around to my quotes list.

It’s by Fran Lebowitz the American author and it goes like this;

“Great people talk about ideas, average people talk about things, and small people talk about wine”


Blue Shoes and Happiness

Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith. Chapter 10. Pg. 116:

‘That afternoon Mma Ramotswe made one of her lists. She liked to do this when life seemed to be becoming complicated, which it was now, as the mere fact of listing helped to get everything into perspective. and there was more to it than that;often listing a problem produced a solution, as if the act if writing down issues gave the unconscious mind a nudge.’

New user bandraoi has created a great list of quotations. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while. Sometimes I make a note of great quotations that I like and they are left around on scraps of paper. I’ve got a terrible memory for that kind of thing- like joke punchlines, I can never remember them when I want to use them. A Lifelist of quotes I like is a great idea.
