Quote away!

I'm currently going through my mock examinations at the moment and let me tell you, it is hell on earth - no surprise there. So as an attempt to boost morale, I've decided to share some amusing quotes found in various books, posters and even tweets. Here you go:

"Age is not something that matters, unless you are a cheese."

"He is not only dull, he is the cause of dullness in others."

"A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it is written on."

"Do not argue with an idiot. They will lower you to their level and beat you with experience."

Favorite Frenchies

Every few months the French music industry releases an incredible song; there was Carla Bruni's throaty "Quelqu'un m'a dit", "Ta douleur" by the beat-boxing Camille and of course, David Guetta. This month brings us "Toi et moi" by Guillaume Grand (below), who is no exception to this line up of inspiring artists. The song itself is about escaping prosaic day-to-day concerns to spend time with a lover.

And if you find that this suits your taste, here are more songs that are just as lovely...enjoy!

Raphael - Carla Bruni

Je sais pas - Joyce Jonathan

(They're a French band that sing in English) Down the Drain - Lilly Wood + The Prick

Te passe pas de moi - Judith

Some other artists to check out include Yelle (bold electro-rap), Gaetan Roussel (chipper love songs) and Christophe Mae (acoustic).
