While you're saving face, you're losing ass.
Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.
I hate quotations.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is full of delightful bon mots and witticisms and quips and quotes. It also had a healthy dose of forgettable comments. All of which is expected from a book of quotes. I think a lot of the forgettable ones might have been funnier when the book was published, but didn't age well. Given that most quote books just have ones that are forgettable, I suppose that speaks better of this one overall.
It is mostly very short quotes and sayings. Divided into some very rough and broad categories. Good to pick up, flip through, laugh, and then put back on the shelf (another reason I've had it so long).
My favorite right now is "never invest in anything that eats or needs repairing" but my foray into rental ownership is just proving that a nice house for me is not a nice rental!
Will be sending this on. I've held onto it quite long enough!
