Frog Quotations

If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first.
Mark Twain

Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.
E. B. White

We think too small, like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.
Mao Zedong

I'd kiss a frog even if there was no promise of a Prince Charming popping out of it. I love frogs.
Cameron Diaz
