Quotable quotes

Years ago, I had a folder and notebook filled with quotes I liked from books, song lyrics, funny sayings, whate have you.

Then one day I got the bright idea to put it all in a computer file and to throw away twenty years worth of paper I had been carrying around.

And yes, you know what happened. The hard drive died. I lost all my collected anecdotes and quotes.

So, I thought I'd start it up again.

Yes, it's another annoying Ty-ism, but I promise it won't be like my list of every single book I've ever read. Just every once in a while, when I read something I like, I'll post it here. Please comment on them.

I've still got my book! I haven't been as faithful entering the quotes though - they've been stacking up on little slips of paper rather than being added to the log.

Perhaps I'll trade you some.

Yeah, I had tons of little post-it notes, cockatail napkins ... all kinds of stuff.

Still, dumb me for getting rid of it. Heck, when I was an editor at my college newspaper, I even used a bunch of them to paper my office wall.
