Some results concerning expressions for moments and L-moments of continuous distributions are given. These include: some decompositions of variance and covariance closely related to decompositions recently given by Yatracos; a similar expression for the population third central moment and a simple proof thereof for nonnegative random variables; an alternative proof of a general expression for L-moments due to Hosking, and some straightforward consequences for inequalities concerning L-moments. Simplicity is a key feature of all results considered in this paper.
