Feeling Quotey Today

So I decided to post some favorite quotes up here on the main page. Some are inspirational, some are silly, but they all jumped up when I first saw them and said “Hey! Make a note of me! Remember me!”
So here they are, for your enjoyment. I will be adding more to the Favorite Pithy Quotations page as I come across them.

    I think Henry Ford hit the nail on the head. Then there was Lucy who called her friend “Blockhead”. And Cher who was a head taller than her man…Enough from me. I’d be interested to know what inspired today’s post .

      Right, and remember Cher got so excited over one “nothing” that she married him for all of four days. I read the quote about fire engines just this morning, and it grabbed my attention and I just felt like sharing it and some others that I enjoyed. The Ghostess

    Oscar Wilde is alleged to have said, when passing through customs in NYC, “I have nothing to declare but my genius.” Another: “All of us are in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars.”
