Words Of Wisdom Wednesday- Introduction




Welcome to Words Of Wisdom Wednesday! Here I'll be posting and sharing with you my most favourite quotes. I love quotes, it's inevitable, I'm a writer. I love collecting quotes to use in making cards, scrapbook pages and of course to enhance my writing, get my point across and make articles more interesting. Quotes make for great facebook and twitter status updates too, ha! One of my goals this year is to try my hand at calligraphy, and quotes will be great for this! So to kick off Words Of Wisdom Wednesday, here are my favourite quotes on quotes!


"Collecting quotations is an insidious, even embarrassing habit like ragpicking or hoarding rocks or trying on other people's laundry. I got into it originally while trying to break an addiction to candy. I kicked candy and now seem to be stuck with quotations, which are attacking my brain instead of my teeth." - Robert Byrne

"Most collectors collect tangibles. As a quotation collector, I collect wisdom, life, invisible beauty, souls alive in ink." - Terri Guillemets

"Quotes are nothing but inspiration for the uninspired." - Richard Kemph

"I quote others only in order the better to express myself." - Michel De Montaigne

"I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognised wiser than oneself." - Marlene Dietrich

"I swim across a sea of quotes, splashing in the words and riding the waves of wisdom." - Terri Guillemets

I love quotes, too. I find many of my quotes for blogs (and I used to have a quote of the whatever column down one side) come from song lyrics and Dr. Seuss.
I have been away from literature (read murder mysteries instead), but have even found quotes in those books to include in my blog. I like the idea of a day devoted to quotations.
