?#7 from My Sister’s Jar (plus a GAME!) – Fav Quotes

in the woods

What is your favorite quotation? Why?

There is not one in particular that comes to mind.  I have numerous quotes that I find humorous, and use them whenever the perfect situation arises.  Please allow me to pontificate:

“Ask a stupid person, get a stupid answer.”  ~ Ed Nikander (my dad)  For some reason, this one just tickles my funny bone every time I hear it.  Test this one out.  It’s true EVERY time. However, it’s best not to let the person know you are testing this quote on them.

“If the shoe fits, buy it in every color.” ~ unknown woman (obviously)  Likewise, this applies to purses, tops, jackets, skirts, certainly any number of fashion accessories.  However, I have only lived out this rule in t-shirts….. black, pink, blue, white…. so far.

“It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you look while you’re playing the game.” ~ unknown woman #2, most likely related to unknown woman #1.  I have to admit that I appreciate having cutesy tennis shoes to match every outfit… they make you feel better about yourself… truly. You might find the need to test this statement too.  Believe me, it works.

“Love is blind… deaf and dumb.” ~ unknown male, most likely. Simply another quip that makes me grin…. honestly, have you witnessed young love lately?  Go to the mall.  Love is at the mall.

“To have a friend, you must be a friend.” ~ unknown, at least to me.  This quote is worthy of testing as well as any of the others.  When was the last time you acted boorish and others stuck around to absorb more of your garish behavior? Unlikely, even for the wealthy.

Breaking from my favorite quotes, let’s play a little game.  Come on, join the fun.  I’ll give you the quote from some of my favorite movies and you guess the movie title.  Leave your answers in the comments and I’ll post the winner(s) in a few days.  What have you got to lose?  You can use a pseudonym if you so desire.

1.  “If you don’t have a moving buddy, GET ONE!”

2.  “It’s a great day to be young and insane.”

3.  “There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story.”

4.  “I love you.”  “I know.”

5.  “Bird. Bird. Bird. Bird. Bird.”

6.  “You are my density.”

7.  “I can tell you, but then I’ll have to kill you.”  (ooooh, a classic)

8.  “That’ll do, pig.”

And don’t cheat by asking anyone under the age of 12 to help you.   If you used a search engine, you have to admit it.  Good Luck and Good Night.
