In Others’ Words: Decide What It’s About

In Others’ Words: The Power of Quotes

In Others’ Words: The Power of Quotes

I have always been a word person. My mother used to say she thought I was born with a dictionary in my hands. (Now that is an odd visual.) And I have always appreciated quotes, savoring the discovery of someone else’s way with words that makes me pause and think or even laugh out loud, thanks to their fresh perspective.  This blog?
