    As I mentioned in The Other Place, one of the joys of this GAGB Forum are the amusing posts that appear from a certain Mr Nobbs. I am sure we all have our own favourite quips, quotes, and random pieces of advice so let's use this thread to spread the word to our Forum Friends

    I'm considering doing an embroidered sampler of this one:

    "Each of us, as he receives his private trouncings at the hands of Fate, is kept in good heart by the moth in his brother's parachute and the scorpion in his neighbour's underwear."
    (N.F. Simpson)

    One of my personal favourites, probably because people always seem to say to me &#39;you&#39;re quiet&#39;

    Wise men talk because they have something to say. Fools talk because they have to say something.....Plato

    My personal saying...

    If something doesn&#39;t work, it must have been designed by a man&#33;
