Witty One-Liners

Oil and gas business is serious business. Nevertheless, a punch line and a little laugh help. This column is devoted to one-liners that stimulate rethinking or improve your mood. Nineteenth century Friedrich Nietzsche and 16th century William Shakespeare help put wit in proper context with the following words:

Wit is the epitaph of an emotion Brevity is the soul of wit

Enjoy the rest and feel free to send us your favourite quotes and one-liners, preferably, those related to the industry.
