To speak ill of others is a dishonest way of praising ourselves.

It is better to have old secondhand diamonds than none at all.

The surest way to win an atomic war is to make certain it never starts.

My favourite was one my ex said to me not long after we got divorced..
I told him I would dance on his grave.
His retort 'Good, I'm getting buried at sea'!!

I can't swim. LOL

No, Mr. Sheep. Dorothy Parker had the best. One:

Clare Boothe Luce - (inviting Dorothy Parker to enter a room first) Age before beauty.

Dorothy Parker - (accepting the invitation) Pearls before swine.

I think I will try this one of Dorothy's next time my phone rings:

'Tell him I'm f**king busy, or vice versa.'

The best réparti has to be Churchill's when he was told: "'You are drunk Sir Winston, you are disgustingly drunk."

To which he retorted: "Yes, Mrs. Braddock, I am drunk. But you, Mrs. Braddock are ugly, and disgustingly fat. But, tomorrow morning, I, Winston Churchill will be sober.”
