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

Psst. It's me. The Quote Mistress. Yes, I'm still here. Not keeping up with my book blog very well...let alone my quotes blog.

In the meantime, Freda's Voice has a wonderful meme called Quote It! that I'm also going to try to get back into. You can post as many quotes as you like. To join in, hop on over to Freda's place!

Here are my quotes for today (a bit of a mixed bag):

The manner in which it is given is worth more than the gift.
—Pierre Corneille

A child who is protected from all controversial ideas is as vulnerable as a child who is protected from every germ.  The infection, when it comes—and it will come—may overwhelm the system, be it the immune system or the belief system.
                                                —John Corry
If we were logical, the future would be bleak indeed.  But we are more than logical.  We are human beings, and we have faith, and we have hope, and we can work.
                                                —Jacques Cousteau

Covert Conversation Rule: If you don’t want your children to hear what you are saying, pretend you’re talking to them.

Every fragment of song holds a mirror to a past moment for someone.
                                                —Fanny Cradock
