Overview

1001 Greatest Things Ever Said About Texas by Donna Ingham

This assortment of 1,001 quotes, inspired by the largest state in the Lower 48, offers up observations from entertainers, politicians, cowboys, columnists, and others with ten-gallon mouths known for spinning tall tales on short notice. In 1001 Greatest Things Ever Said about Texas, Texans and those who love them will be happy as a hog in slops with this entertaining volume that celebrates the superlative state. “It was part of the Texas ritual. We’re rich as son-of-a-bitch stew but look how homely we are, just as plain-folksy as Grandpappy back in 1836. We know about champagne and caviar but we talk hog and hominy.”—Edna Ferber“I am delighted to be here with you this evening because after listening to George Bush all these years, I figured you needed to hear what a real Texas accent sounds like.”—Ann Richards“It has been said that Texas is a place where they barbecue everything except ice cream.”—Rosemary Kent
