Collection of Brilliant Quotes

Some of the funniest words are spoken on the spur of the moment. This is a collection of brilliant or witty quotes.

Margot Asquith

Lady Astor: “If you were my husband, I’d put arsenic in your coffee.”
Churchill: “Madam, if I were your husband, I’d drink it!”

Oscar Wilde
