This is a collection of quotes that I have come across over the years. Some (I think) are beautiful ways of saying something ordinary, some are truths succinctly worded, and some are just ludicrous, and therefore invaluable, collections of words and thoughts.

All authors are credited to the best of my ability (which isn't necessarily saying much).

If you've got any beauties, please forward them to me at
