A pencil behind the ear

quote pencils

A designer has come up with this great set of pencils, which carry inspirational quotes from artists of note. Our favourite is Pablo Picasso’s: "Everything you can imagine is real".

But what quote or message would our tradesmen put on a pencil they kept behind their ear? Would carpenters have "Isn't it good, Norwegian wood" by John Lennon or perhaps the simple "Measure twice: cut once". Would plumbers have: "Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink" from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner?

Let us know which quote you would choose to keep you inspired while marking out where to cut a worktop or drawing up plans for an extension.

Those of you who find pencils with quotes on a little wussy may want to go for the UZI Tactical Pen instead. You can break windows or even defend yourself with this one!
