Whether or not you agree with his politics, you have to admit that Gov. Jerry Brown is usually good for a snappy quote.

Since at least late 2011 some Sacramento Bee reporters have been chronicling his comments using the Twitter account JerryBrownSays. Here are some of the best:

On the trigger cuts in the 2011-12 budget…

On the tax initiative he put on the November ballot…

Upon arriving at the Newseum, a journalism museum in Washington, D.C….

At his gloomy May budget revision announcement…

On calling his proposal to raise taxes on those making over $250,000 a year a “millionaire’s tax”:

While criticizing the high pay of college presidents…

On government…

And these…

If you have your own faves, by all means let us know…
