Wittier Than Wit

He aquí las diez respuestas más agudas de la cultura británica de todos los tiempos, según la típica encuesta llevada a cabo no se sabe bien por quién y se ignora lastimosamente dónde (este ladrador crepuscular, por cierto, le hubiera dado los primeros nueve puestos a Oscar Wilde; el décimo, con suerte, a George Best - viva los irlandeses, y tal...):

1) "Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much." - Oscar Wilde

2) "All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy." - Spike Milligan

3) "An original idea. That can't be too hard. The library must be full of them." - Stephen Fry

4) "Speed has never killed anyone. Suddenly becoming stationary - that's what gets you." - Jeremy Clarkson

5) "A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen." - Sir Winston Churchill

6) "On my first day in New York a man asked me if I knew where Central Park was. When I told him I didn't, he said: 'Do you mind if I mug you here?" - Paul Merton

7) "People are wrong when they say opera is not what it used to be. That is what's wrong with it." - Noel Coward

8) "Maids want nothing but husbands and when they have them, they want everything." - William Shakespeare

9) "I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business, but I was in the top one." - Brian Clough

10) "Americans want grungy people, stabbing themselves in the head on stage. They get a bright bunch like us, with deodorant on. They don't get it." - Liam Gallagher
