The Quote Page

I am a huge lover of words. Since age thirteen I’ve kept “quote books” and filled them with lyrics, poems and phrases that have had some effect on me. I will use this page to share some of those quotes with all of you.

“My only other option is to buy a dozen cats and call it a day.”
