    This is my favourite back handed insult...

    Twat: ' TCRL you're rather quiet for a change!'

    Me: ' Well Twat my Mother always told me if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all'

    I used it once on my cousin who decided to spend Christmas with his gf and not us.

    I'm still cross a about it...

    One of the greatest riposte conversations that still makes me laugh was a conversation between Winston Churchill and Bessie Braddock went as follows...
    BB- Winston your drunk,
    WC- Bessie your ugly but tomorrow I shall be sober.

    Abbreviated a little but still demonstrates the sharp wit and tongue of Winston Churchill.

    Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

    "I believe that when the last ding-dong of doom has clanged and faded from the last worthless rock hanging tideless in the last red and dying evening, that even then there will still be one more sound: that of [man's] puny inexhaustible voice, still talking."
    William Faulkner

    Doesn't sound like Bill was much of a party animal does it ? :eek:

    (In all fairness I have taken this a bit out of context because I've got a hangover and this bit fits in better with my head.) :heyhey:

    As it's a windy day today my thought of the day is...

    Don’t be afraid of criticism; the tallest trees are always confronted by the strongest winds.

    'Laughter is the lubricant of life.'

    I'd like to think I thought of this line first, but I'm pretty sure lots and lots of other people throughout history figured it out long before me.

    David Niven, 'The Moon's a Balloon.' (Which surprised me by being one of the funniest books I've read.) :teef:

    One for the ladies:

    The best way to a man's heart is the gap between the fourth and fifth ribs. If you do miss, and hit bone, just give the blade a good twist and it'll slide in. :P

    In order to move on you need to stop focusing on their life and you need to start focusing on your own life...
    Sonya Parker.

    I love this as it's the first step to realising true success. I find people that fixate on other people's lives and belongings are negative people that are unhappy with their own life so need to make themselves feel better by trying to pull apart other people's. The true gift comes when you focus on your own life and what means a lot to you, what makes you happy is positive all the way and the more you succeed the more unhappy the other people who are focusing on your life not theirs become yet the happier you are. All these problems solved by just being positive and focusing on you not them. ;)
