Loser lit antiheroes aren't well intentioned or earnest; they don't care whether you like them or not. They're self-mocking, ironic and inventive; they narrate their downfalls with manic wordplay, rampant metaphors, wisecracks, and escalating flights of spleen-fueled lyricism. ~ Kate Christensen
Wordplay quotes by Kate Christensen
I don't think you understand," said Milo timidly as the watchdog growled a warning. "We're looking for a place to spend the night."
"It's not yours to spend," the bird shrieked again, and followed it with the same horrible laugh.
"That doesn't make any sense, you see - " he started to explain.
"Dollars or cents, it's still not yours to spend," the bird replied haughtily.
"But I didn't mean - " insisted Milo.
"Of course you're mean," interrupted the bird, closing the eye that had been open and opening the one that had been closed. "Anyone who'd spend a night that doesn't belong to him is very mean."
"Well, I thought that by - " he tried again desperately.
"That's a different story," interjected the bird a bit more amiably. "If you want to buy, I'm sure I can arrange to sell, but with what you're doing you'll probably end up in a cell anyway."
"That doesn't seem right," said Milo helplessly, for, with the bird taking everything the wrong way, he hardly knew what he was saying.
"Agreed," said the bird, with a sharp click of his beak, "but neither is it left, although if I were you I would have left a long time ago. ~ Norton Juster
Wordplay quotes by Norton Juster
Mother could go for one year without food, but not one day without her lip sticks. ~ Barbara Kingsolver
Wordplay quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
tomorrow's gone-we'll have tonight! ~ Dorothy Parker
Wordplay quotes by Dorothy Parker
Scots from hogtowns or cowtowns work from cockcrow to moondown -- to chop down woodlots, to plow down cornrows. ~ Christian Bök
Wordplay quotes by Christian Bök
It took my whole life to buy this stuff. ~ Chuck Palahniuk
Wordplay quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
Yes, I think he even has a title. He's like son and heir.'

I turned her words over in my mind as I pretended to play with my phone.

Sun and hair
Son and heir
Sun and air ~ Olivia Sudjic
Wordplay quotes by Olivia Sudjic
...from Emerson's journals. In the context, it is written in the past tense; changing the verb to present tense it reads: The poem is a confession of faith. Which is to say, the poem is not an exercise. It is not 'wordplay.' Whatever skill or beauty it has, in contains something beyond language devices, and has a purpose other than itself. ~ Mary Oliver
Wordplay quotes by Mary Oliver
Shortcoming shouldn't be in Longman's vocabulary. ~ Natalya Vorobyova
Wordplay quotes by Natalya Vorobyova
People, like us
we feel... too deeply
consumed, in shadow
this game of chance.
Together, surviving
we unending dreamers.
People... like us. ~ Bev Flynn
Wordplay quotes by Bev Flynn
In my own writing, I've mostly abandoned end-rhyme, but wordplay is still a huge part of my process. ~ Matthea Harvey
Wordplay quotes by Matthea Harvey
One can not understand language because language cannot understand itself; does not want to understand ~ Novalis
Wordplay quotes by Novalis
The city is tricky. The highs are so much higher, but in the lows you drop straight down again to bedrock. It helps that streets are snapped to a grid. There are also psychic boutiques and sidewalk prophets, but until you contrive your own love story set in that city, even one as warped as mine, you remain outside it, looking for signals in the white smoke that rises from under, in the sudden hot laundry smells and the LED typos of street vendors donuteasily becomes dount, ominously like don't, to my mind. There was a DOUNT sign on Second Avenue which more than once redirected my superstitious footsteps. ~ Olivia Sudjic
Wordplay quotes by Olivia Sudjic
Why is abbreviation such a long word? ~ Teresa Monachino
Wordplay quotes by Teresa Monachino
Scully was appallingly gregarious - so outgoing she was practically incoming. ~ Karen Joy Fowler
Wordplay quotes by Karen Joy Fowler
I'm just like any other person you can meet and greet on the street and like or not like. I'm not Holden or Humbert. You can really touch me! If you don't believe me, come to Aristod right now. Come hold and hump me! ~ Brian Celio
Wordplay quotes by Brian Celio
Nothing risque, nothing gained. ~ Alexander Woollcott
Wordplay quotes by Alexander Woollcott
Prices of semicolons, plot devices, prologues and inciting incidents continued to fall yesterday, lopping twenty points off the TomJones Index. ~ Jasper Fforde
Wordplay quotes by Jasper Fforde
Committee - a group of men who keep minutes and waste hours. ~ Milton Berle
Wordplay quotes by Milton Berle
You know how there are words that never really - they are never really quite right. You can't quite trust them. Use them. You know. Without pause.'

'There are words I stare at,' Zach says. 'Strange. Every time. Misled, that's one. I see mizzled. And unshed. I read unched.'

'Me too! But that's a different thing - except, now you mention it, it's odd about unshed, that it's only for tears. Mostly. Hardly ever blood, for instance, you don't see unshed blood. Unched. Not really.'

'Not in my case anyway. Mine sheds all over the joint! I'm a bleeder all right. ~ Emma Richler
Wordplay quotes by Emma Richler
Easily found, easily gathered, lives were the small change of this world, and if you lost a few, it didn't matter; there were always more. ~ Salman Rushdie
Wordplay quotes by Salman Rushdie
Brevity is the soul of lingerie. ~ Dorothy Parker
Wordplay quotes by Dorothy Parker
Part of my wisdom consists of being a whiz at reminding the dumb, why they should be whizzes, and not just live life to whiz by others. ~ Justin K. McFarlane Beau
Wordplay quotes by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
Justice has to be cold. Deal with it; it's just ice. ~ Natalya Vorobyova
Wordplay quotes by Natalya Vorobyova
She pursued his lips,' Zach laughs. 'Another one I misread! Pursued for "pursed." You know. She pursed her lips. So whenever you do that now, reach out and touch my lips to shut me up? I think, she pursued his lips.'

'That's so silly,' smiles Rachel.

'I know that. Now I'm pursuing your lips,' he adds.

When Zach kisses her, Rachel is often aware of the pulse in his lower labial, a small heartbeat there. She is aware of a pulsing and a slight thickening of tissue. How many times has this boy bled from his mouth? How many times. ~ Emma Richler
Wordplay quotes by Emma Richler
This is not a sweet skein of thought. Unthread it, Rachel. ~ Emma Richler
Wordplay quotes by Emma Richler
Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire. ~ George Bernard Shaw
Wordplay quotes by George Bernard Shaw
Oh, I'm dying,' I like moaned. 'Oh, I have a ghastly pain in my side. Appendicitis, it is. Ooooooh.' 'Appendy shitehouse,' grumbled this veck. ~ Anthony Burgess
Wordplay quotes by Anthony Burgess
Everyone lives in two worlds," Maggie said, speaking in an absentminded sort of way while she studied her letters. "There's the real world, with all its annoying facts and rules. In the real world, there are things that are true and things that aren't. Mostly the real world s-s-s-suh-sucks. But everyone also lives in the world inside their own head. An inscape, a world of thought. In a world made of thought - in an inscape - every idea is a fact. Emotions are as real as gravity. Dreams are as powerful as history. Creative people, like writers, and Henry Rollins, spend a lot of their time hanging out in their thoughtworld. S-s-strong creatives, though, can use a knife to cut the stitches between the two worlds, can bring them together. Your bike. My tiles. Those are our knives. ~ Joe Hill
Wordplay quotes by Joe Hill
(Media question to Beatles during first U.S. tour 1964)
"How do you find America?"
"Turn left at Greenland. ~ Ringo Starr
Wordplay quotes by Ringo Starr
When they can hear each other over the wind and the music, they speak Connecticut: I will not Stamford this type of behavior. What's Groton into you? What did Danbury his Hartford? New Haven can wait. Darien't no place I'd rather I'd rather be. ~ David Levithan
Wordplay quotes by David Levithan
Assassins: they got sass and live on sin. ~ Natalya Vorobyova
Wordplay quotes by Natalya Vorobyova
You already made your point," I say with a mouthful of fruit.
"Did I?"
"Oh, for the love of dick, yes. Now leave me alone."
"Never. If you want, I'll fuck you now."
The gall. I wouldn't fuck him now if my clit was on fire and needed to be doused with nub-saving cum. I roll my eyes at him.
"No thanks, we have a lifetime of fucking ahead of us," I say mockingly.
He shrugs and starts to walk away as if it makes no difference to him one way or the other. He's such a jackass sometimes. Before I can stop myself I throw my half-eaten banana at him and it hits him on the back of his neck.
He spins around, wipes his neck and looks down at the banana on the floor.
"Did you really just fruitally assault me?"
He thinks he's so damned funny with his wordplay. ~ Ella Dominguez
Wordplay quotes by Ella Dominguez
I am not a slow writer, I am not a fast writer ... I am a half-fast writer. ~ Robert Asprin
Wordplay quotes by Robert Asprin
He's a bit of a dick," I said, flailing for something.
Paul rolled his eyes. "Well it's a good thing you're a bottom, because you're an asshole, so the two of you fit together just fine."
"Wow," I said. "That was a thing of beauty."
Paul looked rather pleased with himself. "Thank you. Wordplay is just like foreplay. You have to just ease into it a little - "
"Yeah, you're losing me now. ~ T.J. Klune
Wordplay quotes by T.J. Klune
It was not that he was feckless, more that he had simply not been around the day they handed out feck. ~ Neil Gaiman
Wordplay quotes by Neil Gaiman
Tao is obscured when men understand only one pair of opposites, or concentrate only on a partial aspect of being. Then clear expression also becomes muddled by mere wordplay, affirming this one aspect and denying all the rest. The pivot of Tao passes through the center where all affirmations and denials converge. He who grasps the pivot is at the still-point from which all movements and oppositions can be seen in their right relationship ... Abandoning all thought of imposing a limit or taking sides, he rests in direct intuition. ~ Zhuangzi
Wordplay quotes by Zhuangzi
You know what they say about big hitters ... the woods are full of them. ~ Jimmy Demaret
Wordplay quotes by Jimmy Demaret
Beware the ideas of March... just one little letter changes the whole meaning. I love the way worms can do that. ~ Alan Dapre
Wordplay quotes by Alan Dapre
Your friends are all the dullest dogs I know. They are not beautiful: they are only decorated. They are not clean: they are only shaved and starched. They are not dignified: they are only fashionably dressed. They are not educated: they are only college passmen. They are not religious: they are only pewrenters. They are not moral: they are only conventional. They are not virtuous: they are only cowardly. They are not even vicious: they are only "frail." They are not artistic: they are only lascivious. They are not prosperous: they are only rich. They are not loyal, they are only servile; not dutiful, only sheepish; not public spirited, only patriotic; not courageous, only quarrelsome; not determined, only obstinate; not masterful, only domineering; not self-controlled, only obtuse; not self-respecting, only vain; not kind, only sentimental; not social, only gregarious; not considerate, only polite; not intelligent, only opinionated; not progressive, only factious; not imaginative, only superstitious; not just, only vindictive; not generous, only propitiatory; not disciplined, only cowed; and not truthful at all: liars every one of them, to the very backbone of their souls. ~ George Bernard Shaw
Wordplay quotes by George Bernard Shaw
Man is the only animal that blushes. Or needs to. ~ Mark Twain
Wordplay quotes by Mark Twain
Argentina. The word itself had lost little of its power to startle and had, due to my ignorance of the physical place it occupied on the globe, assumed a peculiar life of its own. There was the harsh Ar at the beginning, which called up gold, idols, lost cities in the jungle, which in turn led to the hushed and sinister chamber of Gen, with the bright, interrogative Tina at the end - all nonsense, of course, but then it seemed in some muddled way that name itself, one of the few concrete facts available to me, might itself be a cryptogram or clue. ~ Donna Tartt
Wordplay quotes by Donna Tartt
The devil was always in the detail. And here the detail was certainly devilish. ~ Sara Sheridan
Wordplay quotes by Sara Sheridan
I can be really silly when I'm not actually writing silliness, and I have to rein that in. Pynchon, in my opinion, sometimes tells elaborate shaggy dog stories just to work up to a pun or punch line. My challenge is to use humor and wordplay to reinforce the emotional core of the novel. ~ Mary Kay Zuravleff
Wordplay quotes by Mary Kay Zuravleff
When you find yourself writing, reading, or listening the delivery of words when spoken? You know the melody of wordplay. "& I love Wordplay ~ Elijah Cainaan
Wordplay quotes by Elijah Cainaan
It pleases him how Spell is how the word is made but also, in the hands of the magician, how the world is changed. One letter separates Word from World, and that letter is like the number one, or an 'I', or a shaft of light between almost closed curtains. There is an old letter called a thorn, which jags and tears at the throat as it's uttered. Later he learns that Grammar and Glamour share the same deeper root, which is further magic, and there can be neither magic without that root, nor plant. He's lost in it like Chid in Child, or God reversed into Dog. Somewhere inside him is a colon. A sentence can last for life. ~ Charles Lambert
Wordplay quotes by Charles Lambert
Quite a lot is a large amount but quite a few is also a large amount. ~ Teresa Monachino
Wordplay quotes by Teresa Monachino
How are you going to make it move? It doesn't have a – "

"Be very quiet," advised the duke, "for it goes without saying."

And, sure enough, as soon as they were all quite still, it began to move quickly through the streets, and in a very short time they arrived at the royal palace. ~ Norton Juster
Wordplay quotes by Norton Juster
Thanks liver... you are a champ! ~ Siddhant R. Shinde
Wordplay quotes by Siddhant R. Shinde
Look after the senses and the sounds will look after themselves ~ Lewis Carroll
Wordplay quotes by Lewis Carroll
One of my favourite things about country music is that, at least until recently, you could always count on a solid story, a punchline and a pun. I think it has that in common with hip hop, where they're not afraid of wordplay and I really appreciate that. ~ St. Vincent
Wordplay quotes by St. Vincent
Don't look at me in that tone of voice. ~ Dorothy Parker
Wordplay quotes by Dorothy Parker
Perhaps you'd care for a synonym bun, suggested the duke. ~ Norton Juster
Wordplay quotes by Norton Juster
In the 1998 Oscars, I found myself in the bathroom in a stall, next to Tom Selleck. So I leaned over and I said 'looks like we're a couple of peeing Toms. His angry silence is something I'll never forget. ~ Tom Hanks
Wordplay quotes by Tom Hanks
It is immensely rewarding to work carefully with Shakespeare's language so that the words, the sentences, the wordplay, and the implied stage action all become clear - as readers for the past four centuries have discovered. It may be more pleasurable to attend a good performance of a play - though not everyone has thought so. But the joy of being able to stage one of Shakespeare's plays in one's imagination, to return to passages that continue to yield further meanings (or further questions) the more one reads them - these are pleasures that, for many, rival (or at least augment) those of the performed text, and certainly make it worth considerable effort to "break the code" of Elizabethan poetic drama and let free the remarkable language that makes up a Shakespeare text. ~ William Shakespeare
Wordplay quotes by William Shakespeare
I was drawn to love songs, but I was just drawn to great music - no matter if it's hip-hop, pop, R&B or whether it's rock n' roll or country. It could be a Garth Brooks song, and if it's a smash, then I'll love the different wordplay and different melodies. That's what I'm a fan of - great music. ~ Nayvadius Cash
Wordplay quotes by Nayvadius Cash
I dunno." She sat on the bench and hugged the robe like a pillow. "I still think that Brett guy is cute."
"Good luck getting him away from Bekka." Cleo gathered her silky black hair into a high pony and pink-dabbed Smith's Rosebud Salve on her lips. "She's got more grip than Crazy Glue."
"More cling than Saran Wrap," Lala added.
"More hold than Final Net." Cleo giggled.
"More possession than The Exorcist," Lala managed.
"More clench than butt cheeks," Blue chimed in.
"More competition than American Idol," Frankie stuck out her chest and showed them her diva booty roll.
The girls burst out laughing.
"Nice!" Blue lifted her purple gloved hand.
Frankie slapped it without a single spark.
"I hate to be a downer..." Claudine shuffled back into the conversation wearing her slippers and robe. "But that girl will destroy you if she catches you with Brett."
"I'm not worried," Frankie tossed her hair back. "I've seen all the teen movies, and the nice girl gets the boy in the end. ~ Lisi Harrison
Wordplay quotes by Lisi Harrison
Martin had a period of relishing the Boston thug-writer George V. Higgins, author of The Friends of Eddie Coyle. Higgins's characters had an infectious way of saying 'inna' and 'onna,' so Martin would say, for example, 'I think this lunch should be onna Hitch' or 'I heard he wasn't that useful inna sack.' Simple pleasures you may say, but linguistic sinew is acquired in this fashion and he would not dump a trope until he had chewed all the flesh and pulp of it and was left only with pith and pips. Thus there arrived a day when Park Lane played host to a fancy new American hotel with the no less fancy name of 'The Inn on The Park' and he suggested a high-priced cocktail there for no better reason than that he could instruct the cab driver to 'park inna Inn onna Park.' This near-palindrome (as I now think of it) gave us much innocent pleasure. ~ Christopher Hitchens
Wordplay quotes by Christopher Hitchens
Having something worth telling and a passion to tell it are what make you a good writer. I can't tell you how many times I've read novels or articles that used complicated words and witty wordplay to cover up the fact that they had absolutely no story to tell. A good story should be enjoyed; sometimes simplicity can go a long way. ~ Chris Colfer
Wordplay quotes by Chris Colfer
A lot of fellows nowadays have a B.A., M.D., or Ph.D. Unfortunately, they don't have a J.O.B. ~ Fats Domino
Wordplay quotes by Fats Domino
It occurred to the man that the biggest problem with this staid world was the overwhelming demand for conformity. Everything was so eerily definitive: assent to the mandates of society would see you on the rise, but dissent was a steady downward path. ~ Django Wylie
Wordplay quotes by Django Wylie
He finds himself bored by the shenanigans of highly spirited young men. Their concerns reside somewhere between balder and dash. ~ Sara Sheridan
Wordplay quotes by Sara Sheridan
I like persons better than principles, and I like persons with no principles better than anything else in the world. ~ Oscar Wilde
Wordplay quotes by Oscar Wilde

What if I, revealed these feelings
private pieces, cast… at stranger's eyes
exposing sober thought, and truth
as sentiments, lie deep
interred, inside of me… should they come alive?

to never share, that essence... safe, in mind

Restlessness wordplay, stills me
I was born… unsettled

Through my rage, of self-indulgence
all… those chosen things, I hide
deep and unexposed
stay inconsolable… within the inside ~ Bev Flynn
Wordplay quotes by Bev Flynn
The reality is that dying isn't bad, but it takes forever. And that forever is no time at all. I know that sounds like a contradiction, or maybe just wordplay. What it really is, it turns out, is a matter of perspective.
- David Foster Wallace "Good Old Neon" (2004) ~ David Foster Wallace
Wordplay quotes by David Foster Wallace
There are four on whose pots the Holy One, blessed he, knocked, only to find them filled with piss, and these are they: Adam, Cain, the wicked Balaam, and Hezekiah.
Again, an abrupt transposition from the divine to the domestic, from upper to lowly spheres, occurs in the midrash. The homely image of the Holy One knocking on pots apparently derives from the practice of tapping on a clay or earthen pot to hear its ring in order to decide if it is worthy of holding wine. In current Hebrew usage, the expression 'to assess or gauge someone's pot' still denotes taking in the measure of a person's character. From Adam's answer to God, we learn that he turned out to be a pisspot. ~ Shuli Barzilai
Wordplay quotes by Shuli Barzilai
Wake up to think of words ... want to walk through pages of meanings, the links in assonance, alliteration, or just simple sense that moves the eye to leap that way to the next-door play of sound and resonance. ~ Initially NO
Wordplay quotes by Initially NO
I hear there are now Knightsbridge clinics offering semicolonic irrigation – but for many it may be too late. ~ Lynne Truss
Wordplay quotes by Lynne Truss
The English probably do that wordplay kind of humour and whimsy better than anyone, and I've always felt that my writing goes more to that than what I did when I came to Australia. ~ Graeme Base
Wordplay quotes by Graeme Base
Our cadaverous cadre has been walking for little over a day ... ~ Isaac Marion
Wordplay quotes by Isaac Marion
The oppressed grows weightless: doze/n th/rough c/and/or man/aged leg/ions stud/ents ~ A.R. Ammons
Wordplay quotes by A.R. Ammons
If only Uncle Monty knew what we know," Violet said, "and Stephano knew that he knew what we know. But Uncle Monty doesn't know what we know, and Stephano knows that he doesn't know what we know."
"I know," Klause said.
"I know you know," Violet said ~ Lemony Snicket
Wordplay quotes by Lemony Snicket
I ain't no hipster, but girl I can make your hips stir. ~ Mac Miller
Wordplay quotes by Mac Miller
The Bibbidi Bobbidi Beautiful boutique, the name filled me with dread. ~ Jessica Fortunato
Wordplay quotes by Jessica Fortunato
I put the bra in brand, and I top it! ~ Natalya Vorobyova
Wordplay quotes by Natalya Vorobyova
And there are two types of stories. One type is one's own story. The other type is telling the stories of others. Thanks to this genre, writers of nonfiction can now use the tools of the reporter, the points of view and ear for dialog of a novelist, and the passion and wordplay of the poet. ~ Lee Gutkind
Wordplay quotes by Lee Gutkind
I have some things that I've been workin' on, such as delivery, wordplay, breath control, just a lot of other things that artists work on, that the listener may not be listening for. ~ Joe Budden
Wordplay quotes by Joe Budden
War?' The word held too much definition for three letters. ~ Shannon A. Thompson
Wordplay quotes by Shannon A. Thompson
There was no Lo to behold. ~ Vladimir Nabokov
Wordplay quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
Love flies out the door when money comes innuendo. ~ Groucho Marx
Wordplay quotes by Groucho Marx
Morris had been raised a Mennonite stoic in a tribe that wasn't a tribe at all, but more a failed cult whose main sources of entertainment were music, wordplay, and suffering. ~ David Bergen
Wordplay quotes by David Bergen
The thing about elves is they've got no... begins with m," Granny snapped her fingers irritably.


"Hah! Right, but no"

"Muscle? Mucus? Mystery?"

"No. No. No. Means like... seein' the other person's point of view."

Verence tried to see the world from a Granny Weatherwax perspective and suspicion dawned. "Empathy?"

"Right. None at all. ~ Terry Pratchett
Wordplay quotes by Terry Pratchett
Tell him I was too fucking busy-- or vice versa. ~ Dorothy Parker
Wordplay quotes by Dorothy Parker
Writing about sex is a challenge for the same reason sex is a challenge. Because it's complicated. Because it doesn't always make sense and it isn't always perfect and it's sometimes awful and it's sometimes hilarious. But underneath all the clever wordplay, it's about hope. Hope that someone will see us, and accept us, and perhaps - after all that - choose us. It's the barest we will ever be. The barest a character will ever be. That's why it's difficult.
As for what makes a good sex scene, a romance novelist would have told you that when done well and with a skilled hand, the best sex scenes can at once arouse and empower. Sex on the page gives readers the freedom to explore their own sexuality, their own pleasures, their own identities. With hope. And without judgment. ~ Sarah MacLean
Wordplay quotes by Sarah MacLean
I loved Monty Python for the wordplay
this sense that you didn't have to squash your intelligence to be funny. In fact, you could walk right into your intelligence and nerdiness and self-doubt, and that could be funny. ~ George Saunders
Wordplay quotes by George Saunders
If a UFO did land, and invite me onboard, I'd love to have the balls to go in. So, I search the skies for extra testicles. ~ Kelli Jae Baeli
Wordplay quotes by Kelli Jae Baeli
The place suggested a convent with the modern improvements - an asylum in which privacy, though unbroken, might be not quite identical with privation, and meditation, though monotonous, might be of a cheerful cast. ~ Henry James
Wordplay quotes by Henry James
I probably spent more time listening to albums than writing songs. But I think that gave me all the tricks in terms of wordplay, from how I pronounced my words to the actual delivery. ~ Kendrick Lamar
Wordplay quotes by Kendrick Lamar
And there's wordplay and there's rhythms and you have to be able to get the poetry out of it. You have to be able to sell my jokes. And if you're talking about somebody like Sam Jackson, they do that. Sam Jackson can do that. Sam Jackson can turn it into the spoken word that it was always meant to be and he can sell my jokes. And Christopher Walken can do it and a lot of people can do it, all right. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Wordplay quotes by Quentin Tarantino
Dammit, woman, you read my mind," he said. "Is there no filthy wordplay you can't foresee?"
"It's my special magical power. I can read your mind when you're thinking dirty thoughts."
"So, ninety-five percent of the time."
She craned her head back to look up at him.
"Ninety-five percent? What's the other five percent?"
"Oh, you know, the usual demons I might kill, runes I need to learn, people who've annoyed me recently, people who've annoyed me not so recently, ducks. ~ Cassandra Clare
Wordplay quotes by Cassandra Clare
I love astute observations and really great wordplay. I love the way that Louis C.K. observes life, and I love the way Patton Oswalt talks about it. ~ Greg Behrendt
Wordplay quotes by Greg Behrendt
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five. ~ Benjamin Franklin
Wordplay quotes by Benjamin Franklin
In his book, Samuelson grabs hold of Smith's wordplay and freebases meaning from it until a mere metaphor mutates into the economic doctrine that would define the shape and form of global finance for the remainder of the century, and beyond. ~ Anonymous
Wordplay quotes by Anonymous
When I pass the bar, you'll be barred from bars but put behind them. ~ Natalya Vorobyova
Wordplay quotes by Natalya Vorobyova
Two wrongs never make a right. So I took the easy way out. I left. ~ EverSkeptic
