On quotations...................

The faithful reader may have noticed an up-tick in quotes by relatively obscure folks posted here of late.  (Before we go any farther, allow me to acknowledge that their obscurity may have more to do with gaps in my learning than anything the quoted did, or did not, do.)  The quote posted above is a sample.

The source of these gems is Elbert Hubbard's Scrapbook.  While recently helping friends pack up the house of their recently deceased mom, they generously allowed that I could take any of her books that I wanted.  Hubbard's Scrap Book, leatherbound and published in 1923, is among those books now residing at our home.

Gently thumbing through it, the thoughts arose:  What a great idea.  Keeping a journal of meaningful quotes.  Oh, wait..........maybe we are already doing so.  

If you scroll down the "Labels" list on the right hand side of this blog until you come to "Quotes," you may note that there are over 3,259 such entries.  Hopefully you may find something of value there.
