I can't be absolutely certain that these quotes were by the person they are attributed to, but who really cares.☺

I'll start day one with two, if you've got any please add them?

β€œI’m guilt-ridden about introducing her to Paul McCartney. It was a moment of Cupid madness which cost Sir Paul $50 million, so the least I can do is ban her from the show.”

Thanks reminded me of one of my own quotes when talking about Paul: "He was very unlucky in marriage. . . his first wife died and his second one wouldn't!"

I'm not good-looking. I used to be but not any more. Not like Robert Taylor. What I have got is I have character in my face. it's taken an awful lot of late nights and drinking to put it there. When I go to work in a picture, I say, 'Don't take the lines out of my face. Leave them there.'

I make no apology for going to, in my opinion, the master of the witty/humorous quote.....Oscar Wilde. I especially like the second one.

"To lose one parent may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness."

"I am not young enough to know everything."

"Always forgive your enemies -- nothing annoys them so much."

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go."

I also especially like the "I am not young enough to know everything." one.

The last one reminds me of the one "He can brighten any room just by leaving it".~ anon

I have actually kicked and punched a few computers in my time (when they were no longer working and I wanted to destroy them as a result), but they didn't make any attempt at kicking or punching me back. So I can certainly relate to that quote. 😊

RegularComper90 My first rule for when trying to fix anything on a computer is to open the window first, it saves having to call a glazier after you've thrown the damn thing through it. Image
