My husband has two favorite sayings: Nobody Cares & Suck it up.
What's your favorite saying or quote?
My favorite saying is, " Seriously?" I love saying it to the kids when they try to pull the wool over my eyes. lololoo
LOL! I find myself saying that a lot to my kids also!
My all-time favorite saying, however, is: "It's better to remain silent and be thought of a fool, than to speak up and remove all doubt."
I may not always adhere to it, but I think it's a great quote.
Que sera, sera - such a nice quote and song.
I rarely use quotes but my dad sang that song on car journies to my aunt, when as a child and it stuck!
I have many I like, but here's one;
"Yes. Way!" As opposed to "No Way?"
My favorite saying has been "OMG" as of late, maybe because there has been so many moments to say it. LOL
I love this quote from A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh: "Did you ever stop to think, and then forget to start again?" So clever and so adorable.
Does that count? Of course, i don't get to insert that into casual conversations too often.
"They used to photograph Shirley Temple through gauze. They should photograph me through linoleum." Talluhah Bankhead

"Cocaine habit-forming? Of course not. I ought to know. I've been using it for years." Talluhah Bankhead
"Is it really progress if you teach a cannibal to eat with a knife and fork." not sure of source, will look up...
My favorite is something Christopher Robin said to Pooh...

and smarter than you think."
That quote is on my wall and has gotten me throgh some very tough times.

"Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret." Marlene Dietrich
My favorite quote is one I made myself- "Life Is Easy, People Make It Complicated".
Favorite sayings- "What? Are you out of your tree?" or "Go Fly a Kite".
Lillie Langtry, victorian actress, having just seen herself in her first and last movie: "It's the first time I've seen myself act, and I can't say I'm impressed."
