I like a lot of quotes by Jeremy Clarkson. They are short, sarcastic, and full of dry wit. A few of them are here;

“Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... that’s what gets you.”

“I’d like to consider Ferrari as a scaled down version of God.”

“It costs Volkswagen £200 pounds to buy a set of four fuel injectors for the Golf diesel. Kia could probably make a couple of cars for that.”

(Referring to the Porsche Cayenne) 0-60 takes 5 and a half seconds…and about 17 gallons of fuel….

Now we’ve been told in this new series, we’ve got to feature more green cars. So here’s one. It’s really the greenest car we could find, really. (A bright green Lamborghini Murcielago)

Better the Last Smile : Than the First Laughter

The Rock which gets the Beating is a Sculpture Tomorrow

Simplicity is the Greatest form of Flattery

Whenever Yo Fall Pick something

It is always easy to be Brave from a Distance

Many are called but few are chosen

He who takes no chances wins nothing

There is Fortune even in Misfortune

The difficulty in Life is Choice

Failure to Prepare is Preparing to Fail

In a Calm Sea everyone is a Pilot

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

You can judge a man's character by what he laughs at.

Cure it or Endure it!

If you are supposed to live for others, what exactly are the "others" here for?

When you "ASSUME", you make an *** of U and ME both!


One more is my signature.
