pasting text into bash without use of mouse

Is there a way to copy or paste text into bash without the use of a 
mouse? I'm thinking of a text file "file.txt" which contains command 
sequences which I would like to touch up before running.

I don't want to use an editor for this. Just the line editing 
functions of bash. Offhand the only (untested) solution I can think 
of is something like "cat file.txt >> .bash_history", subsequently 
invoking another bash session. Is this stupid (dangerous)? Does 
someone have a better solution?
