Quotes are fun—both serious and humorous. Here are some of my favorites.
The exchange between Churchill & Lady Astor:
She said, “If you were my husband I’d poison your tea.”
He said, “If you were my wife, I’d drink it.”
“I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.” ~ Mark Twain

“He is a self-made man and worships his creator.” – John Bright
“I’ve just learned about his illness. Let’s hope it’s nothing trivial.” – Irvin S. Cobb
WE ALSO HAVE sparkling COMPLIMENTS from movies:
“You make me want to be a better man.” ~ Melvin Udall to Carol Connelly in As Good As It Gets.
“I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.

GOD GIVES A FEW GOOD SLAMS, TOO:
The heart is the most deceitful thing there is and desperately wicked. No one can really know how bad it is! (Jeremiah 17:9, Living Bible)
We’re all sin-infected, sin-contaminated. Our best efforts are grease-stained rags. Isaiah 64:6, The Message
But then He washes our dirty rags:
But when God, our kind and loving Savior God, stepped in, he saved us from all that. . . . He gave us a good bath, and we came out of it new people, washed inside and out by the Holy Spirit. Our Savior. . . . God’s gift has restored our relationship with him and given us back our lives. And there’s more life to come—an eternity of life! You can count on this. (Titus 3:4-7 The Message)
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. (2 Peter 1:2, NIV

One morning when our dishwasher failed to come in, I told the staff that I would wash the dishes since I was the cheapest one on the payroll. A waitress immediately rejoined, “Boy, have you got that right.” Years later, it still gives me a chuckle.
This is an interesting topic. When my daughter was little she made a card for me that was both not so loving but loving. The message inside the card said, “I don’t like you, I love you.” She was so little at the time I assumed that what she was saying was that she more than liked me, she loved me. I must admit though I did question it at times !
When I was working there were times when some of the women around would be talking about their favorite singers, actors, or idols I guess, I would tell them that if they were not God or Jesus that these people were nobody like the rest of us.
