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.

*For that which is boundless in you abides in the mansion of the sky, whose door is the morning mist, and whose windows are the songs and the silences of night.*

Getting things done

(viewed 595 times)
"The secret of getting things done is to act."

Had a good conference call last night with some enthused mobloggers. We've got an action plan in its infancy, and we will iron out the creases and get things done. What we need is patience, understanding and hard work from the community. More official stuff to follow.

What then indeed?

(viewed 1306 times)
What if you slept, and what if in your sleep you
dreamed, and what if in your dreams you went to
heaven and there you plucked a strange and
beautiful flower, and what if when you awoke you
had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The house with nobody in it

(viewed 1681 times)
"I never have seen a haunted house, but I hear there are such things;
That they hold the talk of spirits, their mirth and sorrowings.
I know this house isn't haunted, and I wish it were, I do;
For it wouldn't be so lonely if it had a ghost or two."

From *The house with nobody in it*

Alfred Joyce Kilmer

I Need Shine

(viewed 1094 times)
I have travelled past your window many times.
I find your face too hard to define.
I can touch you hollow thing.
You plague my mind.
I can never go outside.
I will never go back to being blind.
