    I like to collect phrases I've read in books. 2 of my favorites
    "the very nothingness of a thick fog"
    "long silken grasses, like threads of green glass"
    How about you all?[​IMG]

    All of Hamlet. But if I were to pick one,

    When sorrows come, they come not single spies,
    But in battalions.

    I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure.

    I'm not insensitive, I just don't care.

    I know it sounds like I am in denial, but I am not!

    As I said before, I never repeat myself.

    As long as I can remember, I've had amnesia.

    Want more?

    You cannot control whether a person loves you. You can only BE the kind of person someone wants to love.

    Quote:I love that!

    I know that there are people who don't love their fellowman, and I hate people like that!

    Two suggestions...read Christopher Moore and listen to Jimmy Buffett. They will both give you a wealth.

    Two of my favorites are about travel from a book called The Untidy Pilgrim...
    "homesick for a place I've never been"
    "I think I must have eaten a page from an atlas as a child because I have always had a desire for far off places"
