Welcome to my page of quotations about Saturday. Wahoo, the weekend is here — par-tay!
HOUSEWORK & YARDWORK
Better days are coming. They are called Saturday and Sunday. ~Author unknown
Now nothing happened the next week except going to school, and gee whiz, there's no adventure in that. The best thing about school is Saturday because there isn't any. You can talk about Good Friday, but good Saturdays are good enough for me. ~Percy Keese Fitzhugh, Roy Blakeley: Lost, Strayed or Stolen, 1921
When do we journey down to town?
If rough or fine, if rain or shine,
When do we smooth our wrinkles out?
When do we nurse our corns and gout?
When do we heal our wounds and smarts?
When do we make our pies and tarts?
When do the children loudest shout?
When bring the choicest playthings out?
When do we take our trips and jaunts?
When do we gather fruits and flower,
And spend our happy half-day hours,
In shady lanes and mossy bowers?
~Jane Moore, "Saturday," Wild Flowers of Song, 1880 [A little altered. "With love to all my fellow-creatures, yours sincerely, Jane Moore, Bolton-le-Moors." –tg]

How pleasant is Saturday night
When I've tried all the week to be good,
Not spoken a word that was bad
And obliged every one that I could...

It's Saturday — should I just sit down and do nothing or lay down and do nothing? ~Internet meme
