Snippets of Billy Connolly

Free sample

There is probably no comedian so instantly recognisable, either by voice or appearance, than Billy Connolly.  His heavy Glaswegian accent, which might have made him a regional figure, has added to the appeal of this multi-talented performer.  For over forty years he has both entertained and scandalised with his wit.  He has made records as a singer and comic, has become a familiar face through numerous film and television appearances, and has written extensively.

In short, he has become a National Treasure – though he would probably hate to hear himself described as such!

In this book you will find a wealth of memorable and amusing quotes by Billy himself as well as what others say about him, which will give you some insight into what makes him tick.

 How well do we truly know the members of the British Monarchy?  Although their faces are well-known from frequent media exposure, the individuals themselves are, generally speaking, fairly elusive as real personalities, understandably protected as they are by massive security.

The Queen herself, for instance, is heard and seen by the general public at official functions such as a dinner with another head of state, the launch of a ship and the State Opening of Parliament.  And, of course, we are familiar with her annual speech on Christmas Day.

Yet we know that each member of The Royal Family also has a life away from the public gaze and holds beliefs and opinions like the rest of us.  Just occasionally, the mask slips and we are treated to a glimpse of the real person  behind it.

Many hold the Monarchy in deep respect, though some question their continued privileged existence. Undeniably though, the British Royals continue to hold a unique fascination for huge numbers of people, not merely in Great Britain but worldwide. You only have to observe the massive crowds that gather whenever a member of the British Monarchy is present in any part of the globe.

This collection of Royal quotes gives us an opportunity to gain a greater insight into what makes some of the individual members of this British institution tick.  It includes words from Princess Diana and Princess Margaret as well as several of the current royals.  As the saying goes: “By their words shall ye know them.”
