A place where I can share the quotes that I have collected (and keep collecting) over the years. I have gathered them from all sorts of sources. The "Quote of the Day" posts will always be a quote from a book and may be on any topic.

Quote It! Saturday

I know I keep saying that I'm going to get the quote ball rolling again.  Well....I'm trying.  I do mean to.  Where does all the time go?????

In the meantime, Freda's Voice has a wonderful meme called Quote It! that I'm also going to try to get back into. You can post as many quotes as you like. To join in, hop on over to Freda's place!
On government, governing, and university administration:
Cross’s Conclusion: Had the Edsel been an academic department, it would be with us yet.

Our government believes in the separation of church and state and the separation of the taxpayers and their money. 
 Current Comedy

Cuomo’s Aphorism: In government, a dollar saved is a dollar overlooked. 
 —Mario Cuomo

One of the curious things about censorship is that no one seems to want it for himself.  We want censorship to protect someone else—the young, the unstable, the suggestible, the stupid.  I have never heard of anyone who wanted a film banned because otherwise he might see it and be harmed. 
 —Edgar Dale

Some deeper thoughts:
To me, it seems as if when God conceived the world, that was Poetry; He formed it, and that was Sculpture; He colored, and that was Painting; He peopled it with living beings, and that was the grand, divine, eternal Drama.
                                                —Charlotte Saunders Cushman
The heart is a fountain of weeping water which makes no noise in the world.
 —Edward Dahlberg
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.  If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
 —Dalai Lama
