Posted in Motor Critic of the Week,Wheels-Near-U-UK by Wheels Near U Team on the September 28th, 2007

This week rather than focus on one motor critic we are going to look at quotes from the non motor related arena. From Bill Bryson the world famous american writer to George Bernard Shaw the well known Irish literary critic this weeks Motor critics probably never expected to feature on Wheels-Near-U, but their quotes are both funny and noteworthy.

Billie Holiday: Motor CriticGermans are flummoxed by humour, the Swiss have no concept of fun, the Spanish think there is nothing at all ridiculous about eating dinner at midnight, and the Italians should never, ever have been let in on the invention of the motor car.” – Bill Bryson(American Writer)

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather… Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.” – Will Shriner (American Comedian born in 1953)

They think they can make fuel from horse manure – Now, I don’t know if your car will be able to get 30 miles to the gallon, but it’s sure gonna put a stop to siphoning” – Billie Holiday (American jazz singer from the 1930s to the 1950s)

Ernest Hemingway - Motor Critic of the WeekThere are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games.” – Ernest Hemingway (American novelist who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954)

What Englishman will give his mind to politics as long as he can afford to keep a motor car?” – George Bernard Shaw (Irish literary Critic, Playwright and Essayist who won the 1925 Nobel Prize for Literature)
