Browsing the Quotations Page

Four girls, four computers, and a whole lotta writing goin’ on… Kitten and Niner both finished their novels today! Now for the job of revision. Or rather, now to procrastinate the job of revision…

Instead of editing, I’ve been having fun with The Quotations Page’s Random Quotes.

It’s Moonlight‘s fault. She found this one:

Thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I’ll waste no time reading it.

Moses Hadas

And then Niner stumbled on:

Most new books are forgotten within a year, especially by those who borrow them.

Evan Esar

I couldn’t let them have all the fun, so I started browsing, too. Here are my favorite finds:

Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don’t.

Pete Seeger

People will accept your ideas much more readily if you tell them Benjamin Franklin said it first.

David H. Comins

An economist is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday didn’t happen today.

Laurence J. Peter

It is not a bad idea to get in the habit of writing down one’s thoughts. It saves one having to bother anyone else with them.

Isabel Colegate

Writing well means never having to say, ‘I guess you had to be there.’

Jef Mallett
