I've always been a closet collector of quotes. I'm one of those weirdos who actually bought the books full of quotes. I say that in past tense because with the internet today, who needs to buy the books?
I could bore you to tears with some of my lists, but suffice it to say that Mark Twain is my all-time favorite. I can read his quotes over and over and still laugh out loud. Not only was he clever and funny, but he always used the right word, and used it well.
One of my many favorites:
"The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not." ~ Mark Twain
Tonight in my common-cold-induced-insomnia, I've been surfing the net for a couple of hours while drinking hot tea. I found that a blogger I've been following apparently collects quotes, as well. This gal is very funny and always seems to use the right word. And she's looking for your favorite quotes, if you're so inclined to share them with her.
By the way, as I browse the internet, it seems that there is a sad shortage of quotes about Maine. Good ones, anyway. I found a few, but most are from current politicans and are about as interesting and flavorful as cardboard.
Anyone have any good ones?
