A fine quotation is a diamond on the finger of a man of wit, and a pebble in the hand of a fool. ~ Joseph Roux #quote

I expect little out of a quote and that’s why I enjoy them. Living a complicated life has made me grateful for simple and sublime things.

A quote can concisely capture truth and emotion. It can inspire, reassure, and delight. A few quotes change the world and many more change a moment.

While I don’t talk in quotes, they are easy to share in writing. A gift. A diamond. Online they can give people a place to meet easily, comfortably.

A quote can be fleeting, read within seconds and gone. Or it can settle into a soul and help it grow.

What is your take on quotes? Are they overused, cliché, boring? Are they motivational, energizing, challenging? Something else or in between? Do you have a favorite quote?

I’m off to relax with the family. Something about a lot of football 🙂

Rooting for you! ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc

  1. A quote to me is shaded differently, Angie McFly, not so much representing a placard to live by, but instead a snippet of a person’s persona to advance their story or platform. You know, the journalism thing. 🙂

  2. Another charming and uplifting post. Your blog is a breath of fresh air. I love quotes, they can shift the moment, lighten a load, bring a smile…here is a
    favorite from Abraham Lincoln, “Most folks are as happy as they make up their mind to be.”
