Inspirational quotes are great, but shocking quotes can be surprising. Say What? is a trustworthy collection of citations that should have never been said, but they were. From the usual suspects: dictators, drug lords, certain politicians, and self-described jerks in all areas, to the unexpected mental lapses of sports stars, celebrities, and Nobel-prize winners who just couldn't control their mouth.
It was the honourable Walt Disney who once said, "Cartooning requires a sense of humour and too often a woman lacks that." And business mogul Lee Lacocca who questioned, "How much clean air do we need?" And of course we all felt sad for Paris Hilton when she declared that, "Everything bad that can happen to a person has happened to me." Combing though speeches and interviews, Doreen Chia-Jones has collected hundreds of extraordinary citations and anyone could be guilty - even Mother Theresa : "I think it is very beautiful for the poor to accept their lot, to share it with the passion of Christ. I think the world is being much helped by the suffering of the poor people."
