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! For New Year's Day

This blog is, of course, devoted to quotes. But Freda's Voice has an awesome Saturday meme called Quote It! that I just can't resist participating in. To join us in the celebration of quotes, click on the meme link.

Here's my New Year's edition of Quote It!

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.

Benjamin Franklin

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.

Oprah Winfrey

And...in keeping with my other blog, a literary quote:

B: Does your lordship desire to be shaved?
LPW: Yes--let's start the New Year off with a clean face.

Bunter, Lord Peter Wimsey
The Nine Tailors (p. 17)
by Dorothy L Sayers
