” I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognised wiser than oneself.”
It’s easy to search for quotations. The trick is to look for the ones that are relevant to what you’re trying to say, making a point that adds a degree of memorability to your speech. Here are a few taken from my book.
“The future for me is already a thing of the past- You were my first love and you will be my last.” BOB DYLAN
“Love is the greatest refreshment in life.” PABLO PICASSO
“How do you spell ‘love’?”-Piglet “You don’t spell it … you feel it.” – Pooh A.A.MILNE
“Dammit, sir, it is your duty to get married. You can’t always be living for pleasure.” OSCAR WILDE
“Longed for him. Got him. Shit.” MARGARET ATTWOOD
