“Can I Quote You On That?”

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

It’s not an uncommon practice on social networking pages to put up a daily quote.  I go back and forth on the idea a lot, but I’m sure that you have a friend (facebook or any other network) that does it or knows someone that does it.  Maybe even you do it yourself BTs.  If you do, you probably have a reference point that you pull your quotes from.  I’ve recently come across a new source for my own quoting habits, the “Quotationary,” and yes the quotation marks are part of the title, cute right?  I know that there are tons of websites and apps these days where I can find quotes, and honestly, if I was looking for a quote from a specific person I’d probably look towards the Internet.  But if you’re like me and you prefer a real book to an eBook, this one is a great source of quotes that you can flip through at your leisure.  I’ve plucked a few of my favorites for your enjoyment.

  1. Hey, watch the snide on ebooks! Not all that long ago they were saying the same thing about paperbacks.
    Just for perspective …

    • Thanks for reading, I love getting comments but I think you may be a little defensive on the subject of ebooks. I really don’t think having a preference is snide. It would be like saying that I’m putting down woman by wanting to date men. We’ve all got preferences and opinions. Ebooks are great. In fact not to many post ago I was singing the praises of the kindle app on my phone but I like the feel of a book in my hands and the smell of a library. It’s a more sensual experience for me. Keep reading and commenting Beautiful Thinker, be it ebooks, paperbacks, blogs, or anything else. 🙂
