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

Of course, this blog is devoted to quotes...but there is an awesome meme over at Freda's Voice called Quote It! and I can't resist linking up every Saturday. Here's the scoop from Freda:
Welcome to Quote it! Please feel free to grab the button and create your own post. Add as many quotes as you wish, from whomever you wish. It can even be lyrics to a song, just tell us who it is. Anonymous is welcome too.

And my quote for today with a link-up to Freda's Voice:

His mind was always fertile with new ideas; he was never impeded by the hurdle of long-established and respected objections. Sitting quietly at the end of a conference table, pale, seemingly detached, black-garbed, always without any papers before him, he would appear to be only half listening to lengthy expositions until he would suddenly nod and murmur, "Have you ever thought about it this way?"

  1. Made me think!
    Great quote of the day!
    I wanted to invite you to my Friday meme; The Friday 56. It is a quote meme as well, but solely for books. Take a look at this past Fridays' post; http://fredasvoice.blogspot.com/2010/12/friday-56_16.html

    Thank you for participating in Quote It!

  2. Freda, I already participate in the Friday 56 as My Reader's Block.
