Let’s C!

We’re continuing down the alphabet, letter by letter. This time: C.

  • “It is a cursed evil to any man to become as absorbed in any subject as I am in mine.” - Charles Darwin
  • “There are books of which the backs and coves are by far the bast parts.” - Charles Dickens
  • “There is wisdom of the head and there is wisdom of the heart.” - Charles Dickens
  • “There is nothing better than a friend, unless there is a friend with chocolate.” - Charles Dickens
  • “Once you become predictable, no one’s interested anymore.” - Chet Atkins
  • “Any man can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in his error.” - Cicero
  • “The shifts of fortune test the reliability of friends.” - Cicero
  • “Choose a job you like and you will never have to work a day in your life.” - Confucius
  • “Don’t complain about the snow on your neighbor’s roof when your own doorstep is unclean.” - Confucius

I’m trying to pick some of the best I find from the Brilliant Quotes application. Some of them are quite good, but none are ha-ha-funny, and that’s what always made the one-liners collection worth reading through. I need to spice things up a little again with other types of one-liners, not just the ones that will guide you through life with lowered eyebrows.
