I’ve always been a quote-collector. Scribblin’ ’em down in my notebook or CTRL+C-in’ them, and inevitably doing nothing with them except dumping them into the ol’ WordPress draft folder. I collected a bunch into a blog post in 2011, another in 2012, and yet another one 2013. It appears that I’ve backlogged another bucket of quotes. So here they are. Read ’em. Continue reading

I’ve always been a quote-collector. Scribblin’ ’em down, trying to figure out if they are useable in any way, inevitably doing nothing but cutting & pasting them into WordPress. I gathered a batch together for a blog post last year, and it appears that I’ve backlogged another big pile of ’em. So here they are. Read them. Continue reading

I’ve always been a quote-collector. I’ve carried around many a pocket-sized notebook over the years, and scattered throughout their pages (between the to-do lists and the indecipherable scribbles of comic ideas) are little smarty word gems by little smart wordy people. Some of them I copy down to maybe use in Broken Lines or in an Optimist strip, but most I copy down simply in hope of remembering them for a little while. There are some good ones on writing, a few make me laugh, and others just sound cool in an awesome-metal-song sorta way. Anyway, they’re just gathering dust over here, so I might as well dump ’em all into one post. I’ve got plenty more; this is just me sifting through the latest handful of notebooks. Continue reading
