If you ever meet me around a fire, you may hear me ask “Wat is lekkerder as Braai?” To which the correct answer is “Rond Braai!”. However, there are a few other guys out there with equally cool braai quotes.
The first would have to be Adam himself: “Spare rib anyone?”, and even the good Mother Theresa felt she needed to weigh-in: “Braaing is a net of love by which you can catch souls.”
And William Shakespeare getting all philosophical on us: “It is better to have burnt and lost, than never to have braaied at all”.
Then David Brinkley, gives us some advice when “life throws you a lemon” so to speak: “A successful man is one who can build a braai with the bricks others have thrown at him.”.
Afraid of Trying? George Edward Woodberry has some advice: “Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have braaied is the true failure”.
On the topic of trying: “Good braaing comes from experience, and experience, well, that comes from poor braaing” – Cousin Woodman.
Something to think about: “I braai, therefore I am” – Rene Descartes.
The theory of relativity was nothing compared to what Einstein says here: “Learn from yesterday’s braai, live for today’s braai, hope for tomorrow’s braai. The important thing is not to stop questioning why people would boil ribs”.
Ah, but of course: “Braaing is the answer, but while you’re waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty good questions” – Woody Allen.
Who would care to question one of the biggest gangsters of all time? “You can get more with a kind word and a braai than you can with a kind word alone” – Al Capone.
“There are three great friends: an old wife, an old dog, and ready braai”… and that comes from one of the US founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within our braai” – Ralphn Waldo Emerson.
Voltaire must have known I’d be coming: “If braaing did not exist, it would be necessary to invent it”.
“Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t yet arrived. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be braaing in it.”, said Groucho Marx.
And Buddha? This is what he had to say: “A braai that is developed and put into action is more important than a braai that exists only as an idea.”
and Buddha leaves us with this too: “Even death is not to be feared by one who has braaied wisely.”.
