    Better to hold one bird in your hand, than have no hand at all.

    You can take a horse to water, but a pencil must be lead.

    The mountain may come to Mohammed, but rhubarb must be forced.

    I don&#39;t understand the plagiarism comment.

    That is something a friend of mine used to say, roughly 25 years ago. So unless you know Brian and don&#39;t see what you are accusing me of.

    I am of course plagiarising him, however given that this is a "quotes" thread surely that is acceptable.

    Unless of course - Brian, is that you.

    My apologies then, I posted exactly that line in a thread in the funnies.
    Doesn&#39;t appear to be there now, I guess it has gone with VB&#39;s cleanup.

    It was just that I was going to use it myself.

    So it&#39;s not Brian, that&#39;s quite dissapointing - no offence.
