Quotes that make me smile—Part 1

Boomerang Cafe/Bar in Eceabat near Gallipoli in Turkey.

I keep coming across quotes I like, so I thought I’d share them here from time to time. I’ll attribute them when I can.

‘A good holiday is one spent among people whose notions of time are vaguer than yours.’ J.B. Priestly, and posted on Facebook by my cousin Colleen Jury.

‘When my last bachelor uncle put his newspaper down long enough to get married, …’ Orhan Pamuk in Istanbul, memories of a city. If he’d said book, I’d have thought he was talking about Poor John.

‘We don’t sell beer. We rent it.’ In the women’s toilet at the Boomerang Cafe/Bar near Gallipoli.

‘‎Libby Bright and Peggy Bright, this is for you! I went to get a cup of ice from the freezer and I’d forgotten to fill the ice tray… and then I cursed my name as I have so often heard it cursed!’ Petra Bright on Facebook.

‘Didn’t need to get sick to detox! I was going to do it anyway.’ I know who said this, but she can remain anonymous.
