Oh! The glory of a witty tongue

Seems to be the only cheer-me-up at times.

A member of Parliament to Disraeli:
"Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of some unspeakable disease." "That depends, Sir," said Disraeli, "whether I embrace your policies or your mistress."

"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend.... if you have one." -George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill.

"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second... if there is one." -Winston Churchill, in response.

"He is simply a shiver looking for a spine to run up." - Paul Keating

"I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it." -Groucho Marx
