Sayings and quotations

Sayings can be either serious or humouristic... or both. They can state the obvious or something that you never thought of before. Whichever, they often makes you think.

Every month I will try to give you at least one saying or quotation.

I would be very grateful for new sayings, quotations or something like that so if you've got some, please send them to me. My e-mail address can be found at the bottom of this page.
