Christy Stewart (ChristyLeighStewart) | 164 comments You know the thing where you read your fortune cookie and end it with 'in bed'? I was wondering how funny it would be to do that with famous quotes, or book excerpts, and it is, indeed, funny...........

Dr. Seuss: Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened in bed.

Maya Angelou: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away in bed.

Bill Gates: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one in bed.

A.A. Milne: 'We'll be Friends Forever, won't we, Pooh?' asked Piglet.
'Even longer,' Pooh answered, 'In bed.'

Anyone else have any?
