Wanted: Quotes

Recommended Posts

I have a page of my favourite quotes on my blog. Over the years I've forgotten lots of great quotes and I'm not especially well read to have come across all the best ones.

Can you suggest any?

Suggest them here or post them onto the blog...

Cheers!:)

They couldn't hit an elephant at this dist--

-- Last words of Union commander General John Sedgwick, spoken as he was watching enemy troops at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House.

I don't know, maybe I made it up. Anyway, it's an arbo-tree-ist, somebody who knows about trees.
