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. At least it's supposed to be...I couldn't believe that I haven't posted since May! But Freda's Voice has a wonderful meme called Quote It! that I cannot resist participating in once again. You can post as many quotes as you like. To join in, hop on over to Freda's place!

Here are my weekly offerings (all by Samuel Butler):

Conscience is thoroughly well-bred and soon leaves off talking to those who do not wish to hear it.

Life is like music; it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule. Nevertheless, one had better know the rules, for they sometimes guide in doubtful cases, though not often.

Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.

    Though I really enjoyed the violin one.

    Thanks for participating!
