A place where I can share the quotes that I have collected (and keep collecting) over the years. I have gathered them from all sorts of sources. The "Quote of the Day" posts will always be a quote from a book and may be on any topic.

Quote It! Saturday

This blog is, of course, devoted to quotes. But Freda's Voice has a wonderful meme called Quote It! that I cannot resist participating in. You can post as many quotes as you like. To join in, hop on over to Freda's place!

I am still running behind on my usual posting. I'm hoping to get back on track soon. Meanwhile...here are quotes for last week:


In the mind of a punter the law of probability never carried as much weight as the law of possibility.

Blood at the Bookies (p. 17)
--Simon Brett


A murder's a nine-day wonder, but horse racing is forever.

Sonny Frank
Blood at the Bookies (p. 43)
--Simon Brett


Brigg's Physics: If the doctor (or dentist) says that the procedure will produce a "little discomfort," it will hurt like medieval torture.

--Judge Briggs
[This is absolutely true. I have first-hand experience.]


It is vain to say that human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility; they must have action and they will make it if they cannot find it.

Jane Eyre
--Charlotte Bronte


...the more you know about a thing, the less scary it is. And if you know all about it, you find it isn't anything to be scared of at all.

Freddy and the Ignoramus
--Walter R Brooks


For Freddy, like lots of other people, believed things more easily when he saw them in print than he did when he just heard them.

Freddy and the Ignoramus
