1.     A hospital bed is parked taxi with the meter running. Groucho Marx, 1890-1977, American actor and comedian 医院的病床就是计程车,车停着不动而计时器在跑。

2.     Lady Astor: "If you were my husband, I’d poison your coffee." Winston Churchill: "If you were my wife, I’d drink it."阿斯特夫人:你若是我丈夫,我就在你咖啡里下毒。温斯顿·丘吉尔:你若是我妻子,我就喝了它

3.     I have nothing against Hampstead. I used to live there myself when I was an intellectual. I gave that up when I became Leader of the House. Norman St John-Stevas, Observer, 1980我对汉普斯泰德没有任何恶感。我自己作知识分子(凭理智办事的人)时就在那里住。当了下议院领袖后才停止。

4.   Only people who look dull ever get into the House of Commons, and only people who are dull ever succeed there. Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband, 1895 只有貌似愚钝者才能进入下议院,而只有真正愚钝者才能在那里获得成功。

5.     The House of Lord is a model of how to care for the elderly. Frank Field, Labour MP, 1981 如何关爱老年人,上议院是个模范。

6.   The other night I dreamed that I was addressing the House of Lords. Then I woke up and by God I was. Duke of Devonshire, 1920-2004, British peer 不久前,有一天晚上,我梦见我在上议院演讲。然后我醒来了,上帝啊,我真的是在演讲。

7.   LORD ILLINGWORTH: We in the House of Lords are never in touch with public opinon. That makes us a civilized body. Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance, 1893 伊林沃斯勋爵:我们上议院从来不接触公众意见。这让我们成为一个文明团体。

8.     There was no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn’t get any worse. Quentin Crisp, The Naked Civil Servant, 1968 完全没必要做什么家务。头四年过去了,灰尘并未变得更糟。

9.     Housework is something you do that nobody notices until you don’t. Alfred McFote 家务活是你干了没人注意,直到你不干时人们才发觉的一种东西。

10.  I hate housework! You make the beds, you do the dishes –and six months later you have to start all over again. Joan Rivers, American comedienne 我讨厌家务活!你整理床铺,你洗刷盘子——六个月后,你又得从头再来。
