assignment, was that they are reading Hamlet. Ahhh Hamlet!!!!( G-Man 'Flashback' to
English Lit).....

"Something is rotten in the State of Denmark"..
"Neither a borrower nor a lender be"..
"There are more things in heaven and earth Horatio,
then are dreamt of in your philosophy"...

One of my favorite quotes comes from the sitcom Sex In The City when Carrie says.....
" Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them."

That's a great collection of "last quotes." I particularly like Wilde's. I hope I croak off with something half as witty on my lips.:)xox

SignGurl said...

I believe "End Quote" came about like many other recent phrases. Out of sheer laziness. I'm jus' as guilty as the kids. It's too much work to say, "End of Quote".

It's the end of the day and SignGurl grows weary...

Serena said...

"Thank You all for coming to my 110th Birthday Party..Aggggh"

"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." :-)

G-Man said...
