I once had an English teacher at school who was pretty awesome. She used to get so annoyed at the way people say “quotes” when they mean “quotations”. She probably still does – “quote is a verb!”. Fun times. Nevertheless, here is a collection of some of my favourite quotations that have made their way into my life somehow. They’ve made me chuckle, they’ve made me think and they’ve made me remember them. Enjoy.
Pretty sure this was me at some point during my first year of university. What can I say, the food is somehow extra flavoursome. Oh, hi Mum!
Gossiping is small-minded? Ah damn, never mind then…
All you have to do is look at every great artist this world has ever seen. Michael Jackson, Picasso, Jean Sibelius. We call it madness, but those guys have some fancy extra neuronal connections that we will never have.
I like to think I make a pretty great cup of tea. Does that officially adorn me with greatness?
I love this one. More people need to read it and get it into their thick skulls, which are wedged far too high up in their own arses.
Another one for all the special snowflakes in the world who adamantly believe that the world owes them things. I can think of a few people to whom I would love to say this. Let’s be honest, I’ll probably never do it unless – a) I want to get fired b) I have 24 hours to live c) I grow a truly gargantuan pair of balls.
Definitely a chuckley one.
This is the kind of advice I want to be giving my grandchildren when I’m over 60, in a nursing home and pooping myself.
Yup, Teddy’s spot on yet again.
This is just the perfect response to every single ridiculous fad that we buy into simply because the media tells us that we should.
Ah, this was fun. I’d love to hear your favourites and if you have any quotations that you particularly like, and why. I do love a good ol’ chat. You go girl.
