Here’s to Original Quotes, Cheers!

Updated on March 22, 2009

Quotes on Sex, Anger, Business...

Reading a fellow hubber’s (St James) compilation of quotes, I said to myself why not pen some original ones and also ask others to have a shot at it. After all, it is through expressing ourselves on myriad things that we share knowledge and fun. So, go ahead and give us something clever and witty, all your own. Here are my original quotes.


Sex is quantitatively very demanding; it takes at least two to indulge in it.

Sex wins when ‘sleeping with’ and making love’ totally overlap.


When you feel the onset of anger, count to ten and vent it. It will work better.


Business is always rotten; during recession, it just stinks.

Unbroken economic boom freaks one out. Recession restores sanity.

All businesses are constantly in pursuit of excellence. At least, they agree that they are on a wild-goose chase.

Death and God

Between sudden death and protracted illness, I choose the latter. I want to give god a tough time.


Nudity is a real turn-off; it strips you of imagination.


Take all the funny words of the English language. Can you give me one hilarious story like PG Wodehouse has?


America is incredible (whatever that means)!

Political ambivalence is best illustrated by the recent history of America.


False praise alone pleases. He who praises genuinely draws all attention to himself.


After an inspired discourse on freedom, I said to my students: If you have any questions, shoot. One did.


If only all humanity spoke the same language! (We can swap partners easily.)


When I have had enough, I stop spending and let my companions buy me my subsequent drinks.

Declaration of Love

When couples are exhausted, they say to each other: ‘I love you’ and ‘I love you, too’.

Friends and Friendship

True friendship is a life-long probation.

If you like all your friends equally, you really have only one friend: You.

Political Economy

Political Economy, more or less, translates into Expedient Poverty.

Enjoying Literature

Enjoying literature is like reading Dickens on a full stomach.

      Hi Paradise,

      Your comment tempts me to try another little bunch. Should I?

      Back for a re-visit, I liked this thing so much. Thank you, Vaidy.

      Thanks Paradise.

      Wit is just one among the many emotions that all of us are capable of experiencing. Sometimes it helps to indulge in wit, deliberately think up funny things to say. I remember the time when I used to read a lot of PG Wodehouse's novels - I would be cracking jokes and making witty comparisons regularly, almost compulsively, probably annoying some people. But then with practice, we all get better at it.

      Well, I just read your hub on the 30 Hubs in 30 Days. That bit about the bath and the towel falling off - that IS intelligent wit, surely in my view!

      Oh, I LIKE this. I enjoy witty people so much. I wish I was witty, but every time I try, you should hear the polite silence!

      Great hub. I smiled a lot. Thanks.

      Hi G-Ma,

      Nice to feel hugged and welcomed. Your hugs are very special. Your quotes are so like you - so cute. I agree that there is something to be said about the right mood. Bowing to your kind sentiments, I hope to be more visible with shorter absences.

      Hi Q,

      Thanks. Nice to hear from you. I like the one on Celebrities - a smart dig and it reflects my take on the subject, too.

      Great Hub.  Here are a few of my favorites.

      Expert Opinions:

      No one can claim to have all of the answers unless they first prove that they know all of the questions. 


      Celebrities do not impress me very much. Not one has ever asked for my autograph.

      Capital Punishment:

      Murder is such a heinous crime that the punishment is to take a life.

      And here's one stolen from a politcal party in Italy about Immigration:

      American indians had no immigration policy.  Now they live on reservations.

      Oh Dear...

      Working it out:

      "am not sure I can do this all are there and I am still here"??


      "it only hurts when you think about it too much...or forget your pills" ?

      Well I tried Vaidy... not so good at this or maybe my mood is not in the right place. At any rate is so good to have you around again...don't make it so long ...ok? We have missed you...G-Ma :O) Hugs & Peace

      I like your one on nudity best. It DEFINITELY "strips one of imagination".

      Here's one...... Pets are our personal angels in disguise.
