Today we’re supposed to pick a quote and write about it. Now I like quotes A LOT and so I’m finding this one hard. When I was about 12 my parents gave me Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations and I absolutely adore it. I’ve read it cover to cover. What to choose, what to choose!?! I’m just going to tell you a bunch that I like. 🙂
Here’s my favorite quote about experience: “A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.” Mark Twain, of course. I love his descriptions of things.
My favorite quote on friendship: “Friendship needs no words – it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.” Dag Hammarskjold. I’ve looked him up on wikipedia, as I had no idea who he was. A Swedish diplomat.
“Libraries are not made, they grow” Augustine Birrell. Boy howdy, do they! (I’m not sure where I picked up the phrase “boy howdy,” but I’ve been using it a lot lately.
…and now my husband is here and I must away. Today is a busy, busy day. So much laundry.
