  1. I love your collection of quotes.

  2. My favorite out of these is "You can never get a cup of tea large enough, or a book long enough to suit me". That's how I feel on a daily basis, LOL.

  3. No better quotes than those from the Bible! Great quotes

  4. Your blog background is so pretty! And I have to say I was relieved to see that you have a whole list of quotes. I do too, but after reading Tiffany's post and the first link, I was starting to wonder if I'd gone overboard. Hooray! We're overboard together. lol :-)

  5. Those are awesome quotes. I love CS Lewis and used one of his quotes as well! I love the one by Ali Smith!

  6. Love the first one! I also really like the one about editing reality, I think I do that quite a bit, lol.
