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.

Friday's Quote:

N: And who lasts the longest? [in Heaven]
M: ...scholarly people, they tend to last as long as anyone. They like sitting around reading all the books there are. And then they love arguing about them. Some of those arguments--she cast an eye to the heavens--go on for millennium after millenium. It just seems to keep them young, for some reason, arguing about books.
