I love quotes.  I think I love them like I love song lyrics.  It's the words someone else has said that just make complete sense.  And let's face it, I'd never come up with this on my own.  I had most of these stuck to my wipe-off board in my cube, but in a moment of decluttering I decided to take them down and just put them in one document.  And now I'm going to share them with you.  Because I'm nice like that.
