Above quote is from A. A. Milne, the following is by me!
Why, if you choose left you can be right,
But if you choose the right you can be the one left behind in the fight?
Why is Pea spelled that way, but not spelled as a Pee?
Would the story have been told, if the Princess had worn a nappy?
Why do cauliflowers grow on ears?
If you prefer a bath to a shower, could you be called a Bathysphere?
How come an Orange is a fruit but a colour too?
What came first is confusing me, does it confuse you?
You can kick a ball but if balls are kicked,
Is that the same pain that horses feel when with a pin they are being picked?
You can squeeze a hand, squeeze a toe.
Must you squeeze a Toad before it fits in the Hole?
Why is it said that life can be a pain in the butt?
Do you keep water in a barrel if it’s scarce or if there’s a glut?
Language, like people, can get on your nerves.
Treat them both well, giving each the respect they earn and deserve.

About Daniel Kemp
Daniel Kemp is a seventy-four-year-old member of The Society of Authors. He is also a bestselling writer. He writes stories that appeal to those who like challenging themselves to solve mysteries that are set out before their eyes.
His introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself!
On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic incident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden.
Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for six years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company.
All ten of his novels are now published by Next Chapter Publishing Company which has added an edition titled The Heirs And Descendants Collection, which holds all four books of that series, alongside an edition titled The Lies And Consequences Collection which contains all four volumes of that series.
He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed executive of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising his first novel.
He likes to write quotes and it's on Goodreads where you can find them--- https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/list/72612151 An example of these quotes opens his novel--Once I Was A Soldier:--There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
