Q is for .......Quotes
I spent quite bit of time querying the possibilities of the letter 'Q' in this series. I considered 'quaint', 'quintessential' - even thought about writing about HM the Queen!
In the end I've settled on sharing a few of my favourite quotes, limiting myself to the subjects of reading, writing and literature!
"How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live." Henry David Thoreau
"I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again." Oscar Wilde
"This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force." Dorothy Parker
"The first step in blogging is not writing them but reading them." Jeff Jarvis
"Never judge a book by its movie." J.W.Eagan
...and finally - my absolute favourite:
"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read." Groucho Marx
