"Quotation"

group profile | members | imagewall | quotation maps

We bloggers like a good quote, don't we?

This group is for your favourite quotations, and i'm not just talking about things you read in Bartlett's. It could be an inspirational excerpt from an ancient text; a memorable line from a movie; advice an old school teacher gave that stuck with you. It can even be something you overheard at the bus stop this morning.

Add a poignant photo to accompany your quote.

If you tag the posts, perhaps we can build up a searchable bank of our own favourite words, phrases, quotations...

You get the picture. Join the group and get quoting. You can quote me on that.

The lovely diminutives.

I saw the separateness of all things!"

Time is Fleeting

(viewed 2686 times)
"Art is long, and time is Fleeting,
and our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave."


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

*Yes, Time is fleeting always makes me think of Rocky Horror and the Time Warp song/dance. Also applicable here. :D

THE ONLY PEOPLE

(viewed 699 times)
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!”
- JACK KEROUAC, ON THE ROAD
