It is a good thing for an educated man to read books of quotations.

Winston Churchill

We all know by now that I love quotations. Judging by the tweets of fellow writers on Twitter, I'm not alone in this love for insightful snippets.

Therefore, I felt it appropriate to share some of my favourite Quotations today, as the Q in my A to Z Challenge:

"If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves."
- Thomas Alva Edison

"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."
- Eleanor Roosevelt

"The argument from Intimidation is a confession of intellectual impotence."
 - Ayn Rand

"A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her."
 - David Brinkley

"People don't care how much you know--until they know how much you care."
- John C. Maxwell

I could go on forever, to be honest, but I'd better not, lest you tire of me!

I get quotes sent to me, via email, on a daily basis. I enjoy pausing for that wee moment of clarity. If you'd like that too, I'd recommend subscribing to Quote Of The Day and Thought Of The Day.

I'd like to mention that I haven't had much time for visiting other blogs the past few days. Thank you to my lovely readers, who comment on my posts regardless of this.

And now... for the Pièce de résistance.

This song takes pride of place as my No. 1 Favourite Song of All Time. Ladies and Gentlemen... I give you Queens of The Stone Age, Song For the Dead.

I agree with Thomas Edison, and we should do exactly that. It would be awesome!

Two of my favourite quotes:
In Africa there is a concept known as ubuntu - the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world, it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievements of others ~ Nelson Mandela.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel ~ Maya Angelou.
