Assorted quotations

These are just some assorted quotations which I happen to like. I got them all from the same book, but never mind that; it’s well out of print by now.

  • “Marriage: A community consisting of a master, a mistress and two slaves, making in all two.”
    — Ambrose Bierce
  • “I’m not denyin’ the women are foolish: God Almighty made ’em to match the men.”
    — Character of female novelist George Eliot
  • “The British have never been spiritually minded people, so they invented cricket to give them some notion of eternity.”
    — Lord Mancroft
  • “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.”
    — Winston Churchill (Attrib)
  • “A committee is a group that keeps the minutes and loses hours.”
    — Milton Berle, US comedian
