A lot of people keep little books of inspirational quotes from religious leaders or famous people. I don't. But I do gather various quotes and one-liners from my own life that make me laugh, or which I wish to remember, and write them on the inside covers of my doodle book. Here are the ones I love the best:
Band director at BYU: "Just be accurate, horns."
Oboe instructor at BYU: "Still on the horn? You can get over that, you know."
Creative writing teacher at BYU to another student: "Does this story go forward? I mean, eventually?"
Student at BYU: "Beethoven may not have been a clogger, but he was a violist."
King Tuffett: "This is a fun game now."

King Tuffett: "Because now there's violence in the game."
Jennie: "Oh my gosh, you actually learned from a book?"
Betty: "How do you make an elephant float? With one scoop of ice cream and one scoop of elephant."
Nephew D: "And root beer!"
Betty: "Well, of course, root beer."

Random date: "Turn left at the stop sign. It's where all those cars are stopped."
Ward choir director: "People! Are we crashing a train or singing a song?"
Betty: "The moon is my favorite celestial body."
