Janis's Favorite Sayings
Just for fun, here are some of the slogans, sayings, quotes,
mottos, and one-liners that I've been collecting over the years. In

"Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?"
Never Kiss a Goat on the Lips (This was the title of a book that came
out years ago about a family's adventures in moving to the country. It's also very
"Some leaders are born women" — Evan Picone clothing tag
"It's a poor dog that won't wag its own tail."
Georgina Gentry's grandmother.
"Well I'll swan." — my grandmother, Myrtle Lillian Miller Brown
A favorite example of how things can be skewed by taking them out of
context (or edited by some crafty editor) comes from the Bible: "Judas hanged
himself" followed later with, "Go thou and do likewise."
