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

This blog is, of course, devoted to quotes. But Freda's Voice has a wonderful meme called Quote It! that I cannot resist participating in. You can post as many quotes as you like. To participate, hop on over to Freda's place and join in!

Here I am again playing catch-up for the week:

Tuesday's Quote:

I'm anxious about my friend Puffin. Not at all up to the mark. Most depressed. I told him he had no business to be depressed. It's selfish to be depressed, I said. If we were all depressed it would be a dreary world, Miss Elizabeth.

Major Flint
Miss Mapp (p 225)
E. F. Benson

Wednesday's Quote:

...we are all deluded about ourselves. And we define ourselves in terms of what we fondly imagine is our most impressive feature.

Stephen Pile (in the intro to)
Paying Guests
by E. F. Benson

Thursday's Quote:

Miss Howard...suffered from the essentially middle-age disease of fabrication, and whether she looked at her physical image in the tall looking-glass in her bedroom, or contemplated herself in the mirror of her mind, she now saw what she had got to beleive about herself.

Paying Guests (p 22)
E. F. Benson

Friday's Quote:

Old age is like climbing a mountain. The higher you get, the more tired you become. But your view becomes much more extensive.

by Ingmar Bergman

Saturday's Quote:

You have to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there.

by Yogi Berra
