Q.U.O.T.E. [Quotes Up On The Edge] – 20200608

Q.U.O.T.E. – 20200609

 

INTRODUCTION

If you happen to follow STATUS QUOtes on a regular basis, you might have noticed that controversial topics are largely avoided.

As a quotation enthusiast, I felt there was a need for a space with quotes that would resonate with readers and which, by the nature of the quote or the person quoted, might cut a bit closer to the bone than those on the STATUS QUOte pages.

That’s where Q.U.O.T.E.Quotes Up On The Edge comes in. These pages, unlike STATUS QUOtes, will not be published on a daily or regular basis. When there has been an ample number of witticisms, timely remarks, irreverent humor, etc. to gather an interesting compilation, they will appear on JBRish.com

If this is your “cup of tea,” check back often! Please do not comment about the topics and/or opinions; they are not necessarily those of JBRish. If you have something to say that would enlighten viewers regarding the meaning of the quotation or quip, then please feel free to chime in.

Until then, enjoy this Q.U.O.T.E. edition!

 

“Democracy is always harmful to elite interests. Almost by definition.” — Noam Chomsky

“It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor.” — Neil Gaiman

“What the mother sings to the cradle goes all the way down to the coffin.” — Henry Ward Beecher

“I told the ambulance men the wrong blood type for my ex, so he knows what rejection feels like.” — Pippa Evans
