Saturday Word Play- Quotable Wordles


I once said, "I like books. They're like sandwiches with paper coldcuts." Okay, so I'll never be quoted. Fortunately, the authors below are much wittier and elegant than I. Their quotes have been entered into that miracle of creation known as Wordle. I'll give you the author, you tell me the correct quote. A word of caution: sometimes it's not as simple as unscrambling the quote. The repeated words of each quote (should there be any) appear only once in the Wordle.

As usual, feel free to do all ten at home. However, please answer only one in the comment section. That way, 9 others will have a chance to play along.

1. Douglas Adams
Wordle: Douglas Adams Quote

2. W. Somerset Maugham
Wordle: W. Somerset Maugham Quote

3. Oscar Wilde

4. Moliere

5. Margaret Atwood

It's too early in the morning ... my brain is still asleep :)

I finished my 15th Canadian book last night:

Excellent book about Canada war brides!

I'm taking the easy one, #10 by Gore Vidal:
Never have children, only grandchildren.

Sounds like a philosophy I can espouse but hard to implement.

Just found "Wordle" this week! Made a "Daughter Dearest" with my little one who was home sick with the flu — a great picker-uper for a little girl who hates to miss school.

#8 Thoreau is: "Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it."

I love Wordle! I could never get it to work on Wordpress though. Sigh.
