Quick Wit Summary

Quick Wit by Des MacHale

Quick Wit is the second volume in Des MacHale's best-selling Wit series, the best-ever collection of humorous remarks, amassed over a period of 20 years. Taken from every source imaginable they have a breadth and freshness that simply cannot be matched by a trawl through a standard book of quotations. Here you'll find not only W. C. Fields and George Bernard Shaw but also a huge range of others from Paul Merton to Margaret Thatcher. Arranged thematically, the quotes in this unputdownable collection not only stand alone to tickle the humour buds but feed off - and even argue with - one another. On politics: John Major delivers all his statements as though auditioning for the speaking clock. - Steven Glover. On sport: I am the greatest golfer in the world. I just haven't played yet. - Muhammad Ali.
