You may ask, “What is a quip?” A quip is “a clever or witty remark or comment.” It makes you think and usually brings a smile to your face. There are quite a few synonyms for quip, and sarcasm is not one of them. Sarcasm often is unkind and that is not the purpose of Tips & Quips. The quips are meant to lift your spirits and bring a smile to your face. Tips are meant to make your life easier.
I hope you enjoy!
