Nature gets credit which should in truth be reserved for ourselves: the rose for its scent, the nightingale for its song; and the sun for its radiance. The poets are entirely mistaken. They should address their lyrics to themselves and should turn them into odes of self congratulation on the excellence of the human mind.

My dad said: 'It looks like you'll be world No.

1 in a few hours and I wanted to be the first to say congratulations.'

Congratulations, you have a sense of humor. And to those who didn't: Go stick your head in the mud.

We have a problem. 'Congratulations.' But it's a tough problem. 'Then double congratulations.'

I'm not supposed to talk about the snail.

The snail is, well, congratulations to whoever noticed it. It's supposed to be a thing where you gotta look for it in every episode, and it's there three times in every episode.

Because A Walk To Remember had come out and it had made money and I got a lot of congratulations at that time as it happens out there.

Congratulations! Today is your day!

The news of the discovery spread fast all over the country, and inquisitive enquiries mingled with congratulations from this moment became the daily programme.
