Title: Unknown quote
Post by: BettyRubble on December 02, 2020, 04:48:10 AM
Hello!

I am at lost with one of the quotes. I am pretty sure it is a quote from one of Clint Eastwood movies but I have no idea which one. That is the quote as I remember it:

?They say marriage is made in heaven, but so are thunder and storms?

Could someone offer me a helping hand, please?

Hi, BettyRubble, that is not a quote from a Clint Eastwood movie, and I am quite sure it is not something Clint Eastwood said, even though you can find a lot of Internet sites where it is attributed to him.

It seems to be one of those clever sayings that get attributed to famous people over the years. With the help of a Google Books search, I can trace it back at least as far as 1969. Here is a screencap from 2000 One Liners by Larry Oliver, published in 1969:
