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 of the Day

I am not one of those intellectual sleuths, I am afraid. My mind does not work like an adding machine, taking the facts neatly one by one and doing the work as it goes along. I am more like the bloke with the sack and spiked sticks. I collect all the odds and ends I can see and turn out the bag at the lunch hour.
