Oh, I am a sucker for a good quote. To me, quotes represent wisdom past, the whisper of a brilliant mind from a distant place, a reminder that words last forever … far after we are gone.  A majority of my favorite quotes are from my favorite literary works. I established quite the collection during my studies as an English major. I would often underline, fold over, tab, highlight (you name it) my favorite passages in my favorite books – Hence why I find the transition into electronic books so unbearably difficult.   Here is a list of just a few of my favorites.   Do you have a favorite quote? What does it mean to you?
