      My 14yr old Sam asked me the other day.......

      "Off the top of your head dad - what are your favourite quotes / sayings......"

      Trying to stick with the brief - 2 jumped into my head (one famous and one from my old man): -

      "......the banality of evil....." from the title of Hannah Arendt's book "Eichmann in Jerusalem - A Report on the Banality of Evil"

      "......of all the many things you can be in life son, the one thing you really don't want to be is a recidivist....." from my old man meaning - when you f**k up, own it and don't do it again.....

      Got me thinking - there are loads more but I just wondered what some other might think, that's if this sorta thing floats your boat like.......?

      Love to find out.

      Sounds like my dad's quote about waiting etc : It's like waiting for a wooden horse to sh*t. His other often used phrase it "it runs in the family like wooden legs'

      An older colleague of mine was speaking to one of our customers and she was referencing the fact that there was no real substance to his business, despite his best efforts to prove otherwise. She described him as “all fur coat and nae knickers”.

      "as rare as rocking horse sh*t" is one I like, as is "and if my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle"

      Coming from a place famed for it's sayings and witticisms, the list is long, but those are 2 that tickle me.
