On Meow-day 1-02-2012 I asked you :
Who said this?
"Speak softly and carry a big stick."
a) Grover Cleveland
b) Warren G. Harding
c) Theodore Roosevelt
If you thought that perhaps it was Warren G. Harding . . . nope, sorry instead I believe it was Theodore Roosevelt who first used the phrase in a speech at the Minnesota State Fair on September 2, 1901, twelve days before the assassination of President William McKinley.
A Scottish lad and lass were sitting together on a heathery hill in the Highlands. They had been silent for a while, when the lass said, "A penny for your thoughts."
The lad was a bit abashed, but he finally said, "Well, I was thinkin' how nice it would be if ye'd give me a wee bit of a kiss."
So she did so. But he again lapsed into a pensive mood which lasted long enough for the lass to ask him, "What are ye thinkin' now?"
To which the lad grumbled, "Well, I was hopin' ye hadn't forgot the penny!"
