Inspired quotations

Stuff that others might have said or you your self have used that tickles or inspires.

For me this one has sprung to mind lately and I cannot think why "?"

"It's best to remain silent and appear stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt !"
Alex Glass

I love that one Cybers.

One which I use often is from Tony Benn

"In order to understand what someone is saying first you must understand where they are coming from."

So true too.
Charlie Endell

"If you're going through hell, keep going."

Winston Churchill
Lobey Dosser

" refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed man."

Variations on this one are usually attributed to Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) or Winston Churchill, but apparently it was first used by William Shakespeare.

Wasn't it Churchill who was told by Lady Astor (or some other snooty socialite) "If you were my husband, I'd poison you!"

He supposedly responded, "And if you were my wife -- I'd drink it."
