Snappy Quips

This is the vQuote page of the vinceunlimited web site, which will eventually be populated with all the original and memorable quotations that have oratoraly spewed forth from the mouth of Vince.

Eventually every one of Vince's quotes should be on this page so please re-visit regularly to keep up to date with the latest posts.

Our lives are dominated by the phrases and sayings dreamt up at alcohol fuelled, barnstorming sessions in trendy, high rise office spaces by people wearing brightly coloured braces with a tendency to say 'think outside the box' quite a lot. At least that's what I presume.

I once applied for a position at one of these copywriting companies but wasn't considered. I figured I would be good at the job and my natural talent would shine through. Plus the braces would have suited me. It would be more appropriate for me than the soulless industry I had fallen into. However, possessing my kind of staying power and determination I gave up at the first hurdle and have been a closet copywriter ever since.

But now comes my revenge. The internet has allowed us all to fulfill our deepest wishes despite our given opportunities. Now luck no longer controls our destiny and it's up to us to seize the chance and make amends for the injustices of fate. If only we could be arsed.

I will use this part of my website to publish the quotes, quips and sayings that I use or think up. Kind of a personal Dictionary of Quotations. All will be, as far as I am aware, original. Please advise me if this isn't the case. And, as is the nature of these things feel free to quote them mercilessly. A certain pride will amass in my inner regions when I hear them uttered by the great and good. But don't forget that acknowledgement when appropriate.

Eventually, when I have had more time to gather them all together I intend to group the phrases, but for now, here is a teaser.


Getting up at the crack of birds - An early start - First published in version 1.00 in Oct 2003
