Alex Morritt Motivational Quotations:

  • “New Year - a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story? Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.”

  • “As with all new inventions, there are upsides and downsides. The commercial drone is no exception. But until robust safeguards have been introduced to protect personal privacy from prying eyes in the skies, the true benefits to society of unmanned aerial vehicles will remain unrealised.” 

  • “The word 'friend' has become so utterly void of meaning in a world governed by   social media. How can anyone truly claim to have eleven hundred friends? In my book that would involve making time to meet at least three of them every day of the year.”

  • “Short story collections are the literary equivalent of canapés, tapas and mezze in the world of gastronomy: Delightful assortments of tasty morsels to whet the reader's appetite.” 

  • Life is indeed colorful. We can feel in the pink one day, with our bank balances comfortably in the black, and the grass seemingly no greener on the other side of the fence. Then out of the blue, something tiresome happens that makes us see red, turn ashen white, even purple with rage. Maybe controlling our varying emotions is just 'color management' by another name.”

  • “Owning a drone does not a pilot make.” 

    Alex Morritt

  • “Age is a seasoned trickster. To our parents, we will always be children. Within ourselves, the same yearnings of youth; the same aspirations of adolescence, will last a lifetime. Only to the young - blinded by our grey hair and slowing gait - do we appear old and increasingly beyond the pale.”

  • “There is already enough chattering nonsense on the ground. Do we really need aviaries in pressurised tin cans at 30,000 feet as well?”

  • “The more time we spend interconnected via a myriad of devices, the less time we have left to develop true friendships in the real world.” 

  • “If 'seeing is believing' what happened to taste, touch, sound and smell? Did our creator really intend to favour sight over the other senses? I don't believe so.”

  • “Owning fewer keys opens more doors.” 

  • “The 'Selfie Stick' has to top the list for what best defines narcissism in society today.” 

  • “In the absence of a formally agreed, worldwide dictionary definition of 'Quotography' (in 2016), here are my two cents worth: 'Quotography is the art of pairing unique quotations with complementary images in order to express thought-provoking ideas, challenging concepts, profound sentiments'.” 

  • “How initially 'to get her in the sack' and subsequently to avoid 'her giving you the sack' are not identical dilemmas faced by the male species, but they sure have a bizarre habit of being bedfellows” 

  • “Let's stop kidding ourselves that Greek debt is the Euro's key problem. With Greece gone, who's next?” 

  • “Why the obsession with worldly possessions? When it's your time to go, they have to stay behind, so pack light.” 

  • “Mounting tensions in Eastern Europe send shivers down the spine. Barely a quarter of a century after the end of the Cold War we seem to be sliding inexorably towards another.” 

  • “For millenia migrating birds have filled the skies, heading south in search of
    warmer climes and richer pickings. Conversely, these days, droves of our fellow beings struggle northbound against all odds, seeking safety and a better life. The key difference? This vast exodus of human traffic moves in one direction only. A testimony to failed foreign policy and disastrous military intervention that may have sown the seeds of European disintegration.” 

  • “If paparazzi armed with telephoto lenses have long been the scourge of the rich and famous; civilian drones are fast becoming the new menace to the ordinary man on the street.”

  • “Every giant leap for mankind resulting from a technological advance requires a commensurate step in the opposite direction - a counterweight to ground us in humanity.” 

  • “Motorcycle adventures are the perfect antidote to middle age.”

  • “Oil may run out, liquidity may dry up, but as long as ink flows freely, the next chapter of Life will continue to be written.” 

  • “Casting a curious gaze down on planet Earth, extra-terrestrial beings could well be forgiven for assuming that we humans are programmed in every move we make, by a palm-sized, oblong, slab of glass. More perplexing than that, who on earth could convince them otherwise ?” 

  • “A fine single malt whisky, of course, is purely medicinal - it cures all manner of ailments one may care to imagine.” 

  • “If the surprise outcome of the recent UK referendum - on whether to leave or remain in the European Union - teaches us anything, it is that supposedly worthy displays of democracy in action can actually do more harm than good. Witness a nation now more divided; an intergenerational schism in the making; both a governing and opposition party torn to shreds from the inside; infinitely more complex issues raised than satisfactory solutions provided. It begs the question 'Was it really all worth it'?” 

  • “If ever an obsolete term urgently needed redefining, the humble 'glove compartment' would surely win any contest hands down.” 

“When a political opponent resorts to the racist card, it's a sure sign of moral bankruptcy: there's no decent argument left in the armoury.” ​

Alex Morritt

  • “Whoever perceives that robots and artificial intelligence are merely here to serve humanity, think again. With virtual domestic assistants and driverless cars just the latest in a growing list of applications, it is we humans who risk becoming dumbed down and ultimately subservient to machines.” 
  • “If the original architects of the 'European dream' were to wake from their slumber, they would no doubt be turning in their graves at the threats to the Union posed by today's unparalleled mass migration and surge in home grown terrorism. Luckily for them, it is the nightmare of Europe's current leaders to ponder the challenges of reinstating national borders, curbing free movement of people, combating extremism, all of which in turn may lead to disintegration of the European Union itself and all that it stands for.”

  • “How many of your contemporaries - when asked the question 'Are you glad you had kids'? - invariably respond 'Yes, but..'?” 

  • “Red onion skins and New Year's Eve have much in common - they both peel away to reveal new vibrancy.” 

  • “Happy New Year' is a festive form of address often uttered without thinking. Yet how many souls will in fact be happy in the coming year is a taxing question requiring a great deal more thought.” 

  • “Red onion skins and New Year's Eve have much in common - they both peel away to reveal new vibrancy.” 

  • “Better to reach your deathbed with regrets for things done rather than remorses for things never tried.” 

  • “Watching Nigel Farage rudely insult fellow members of the European Parliament today - the first occasion they were all assembled in Brussels since the tragic 'Brexit' referendum result - made me feel utterly ashamed to be British. Let it be known that Nigel Farage is the very epitomy of a narrow-minded 'Little Englander' who does not represent the vast majority of outward-looking people from Great Britain. His shameful and unofficial campaign to convince the British electorate to leave the European Union was peppered with lies and deceit. His populist and xenophobic rhetoric has also subsequently contributed to ugly scenes of racial abuse and hate crime directed at Eastern European nationals and ethnic minorities living and working in the UK, in the wake of the referendum result. Fellow Europeans, world citizens, let this be a wake-up call. Deny your own domestic peddlers of populism and nationalism the opportunity to follow the example of this unelected, disrespected maverick, intent on making a name for himself, for he has unwittingly unleashed a wrecking ball on Britain's future economic prosperity, cultural diversity and social harmony.” 

  •  “Making New Year resolutions is one thing. Remaining resolute and seeing them through is quite another.” 

  • “If bread - the staff of life - feeds the body; stories nourish the soul.” 

  • “The pen may indeed be mightier than the sword, but the wordsmith would do well to welcome the blacksmith back into the fold, so that artisan craftsmanship the world over may fend off the ravages of industrialised homogeneity and bland monoculture.”
