Weekly Geeks- A Quote a Day #1

One of my favorite Weekly Geeks last year was: A Quote a Day. This will have you pulling books off your shelves and Googling for your favorites. It also means a post a day for the next week - or as many as you can do. Quoth Dewey:
You may want to come up with a theme, such as favorite passages from books, author quotes, political quotes, quotes about books or reading, humorous quotes, whatever. Or you may not want a theme at all; maybe you just want to gather up seven assorted quotes that appeal to you. You may want to start each of your posts of the week with a quote, or you may want to give quotes posts of their own in addition to your regular posts. It’s all up to you!

This week's WG brought to you by Terri/teelgee

This is one that I can totally get into!! I'm just going to post my favorite quotes..some of them are about books, while others are just about life, and some have just touched me in some fashion. I hope you enjoy mine and I can't wait to read everyone else's as I am sure to be adding them to my collection!! I'm glad I started that other blog Quotes and Passages so I have somewhere to list my favorites after this week is done!!


Quote for March 7, 2009:




"I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library."
Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice)
