Straplines, tag lines, favourite sayings…we all have them, what’s yours?

In this world where we have instant communication I have come across some good straplines lately. It’s interesting isn’t it that we put our photos up on Skype, MSN, Facebook and the like and underneath there is one line that can say quite a lot.

These have caught my attention…

‘We come to love not by finding the right person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly’.

‘Still looking and still not found it anywhere!’

‘I am writing a book and I have got the page numbers done’

Mine is ‘It’s not the end of the road if you go round the bend’

What’s yours?

    Jane, I love all of these, had not heard but one before (about going round the bend)! I am going to make one up right now:

    Didn’t know you knew Dutch too, Jane. What a surprise, shouldn’t we start ot write in Dutch then , you, Francina and me?
    Here is mine: “Many a truth is said by false teeth”. (It’s not mine of course, it’s from one of the Ronnies,)
    and to finish one in Dutch
    Tussen droom en daad staan wetten in de weg en practische bezwaren.
    Veel liefs en een dikke zoen van Steph xxx

      Hi Jane, Steph here (in her nighty and slippers)
      It is a famous verse from Elsschot coming from a poem called “the marriage”. He is thinking about killing his wife (sounds definitely like a marriage) but then he says “Between dream and action there are laws and practical objections” It is a sort of a catch phrase in Flanders anyway to say the a plan cannot be executed.
      The rest was: Love and a big kiss Steph xxx
      Goodnight

      Hello Francina, how lovely to hear from you and thank you for sharing your favourite…I too have decorated signs in strategic places in our home. One of my best friends is Dutch and he and I manage to banter in Dutch gloriously (thank goodness for Google and the translation service…). Have a great day x
